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?

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。

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!
