Socks for my daughter in law. These seemed doomed from the start and had to be frogged a number of times but I finally finished them last night. Can you tell her favorite color is purple?

Thanks for all the nice compliments. They are self striping. Its called Fixation and is made by Cascade. It's cotton and has the elastic already in it. :D

How is it to knit with elastic-y yarn? I'm afraid of stretching it too much as I knit.

It took some getting used to. It was kind of like knitting with rubber bands but I got used to it fairly quickly. I really enjoyed the texture and colors as I knit them.

I thought they might be the stretchy socks! Very well done!
