Finally Fixated

When I came home, there were boxes sitting by the door. One of them was from Webs! The long awaited Fixation was in it -- and a whole lot more.


I finished the second sock of the Lace Wings in twenty minutes. It's a bit loose around ankle, but I'm still hoping that they'll shrink after a wash. I really love this pattern, and I will try another pair sometime, but I might make it longer next time -- and maybe size 2 needles, instead of 3?


Pair number seven. Now I have an almost-full ball of Fixation in this colorway... OK, another Mitch socks.


What else's in the box from Webs? Of course I couldn't just buy one ball of Fixation. I got a bunch of Araucania NatureWool -- they were on sale! I have been good on my stash control, so I think this is acceptable. After all, this is Christmas time, and I finished the project at work, and... and... It's been pretty stressful at work for the last several days. Yarn hoarding must be better than drinking heavily, right?

お届け物って嬉しいですよね!私も今週、お届けが続く予定なので、今からワクワクしています。落ち着きながらも美しい発色の糸たちですね~♪

ところでTamamiさんは20分で靴下片方編んじゃったのですか?!早すぎるー!そんなに早く編めたら、「明日の服に合わせて一足編んじゃおう~」なんていうこともできますね。すごい!

がみさんたら、違うちがう。糸が足りなくなって中止していたところから(つま先の減らし目が始まったあたり)20分でした!
かたっぽ20分だったら、靴下屋さんしちゃう。
このきれいな糸は、すべて自然染料染めだと聞いて買ったのですが、ほんとかな? もうちょっと調べてみますね。

わーおはずかしい!そうでしたか〜(笑)中止していた所から20分だったんですね。英語読解力の無さを露呈してしまいました^_^;
糸は自然染料なんですか?もし本当なら、こんなにきれいに染まるなんてすごいですね。日本には無い染料だったりするのかな?青い糸なんて、とっても発色良くてきれいですもんね。

The socks look great! When I knit them they weren't tight around the ankles but weren't as baggy as yours, I think you have much smaller ankles than I do! I think that going down to a 2.75mm needle might do the trick for you.

Thanks for knitting my pattern!
