Yesterday, I finished coupling (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer07/PATTcoupling.html) from knitty. I used cascade fixations, my favorite sock yarn. It was my first toe-up attempt and I really liked this way of making a sock.

Wow, really cool! I like yours better than the picture from knitty (I can see the pattern more easily with the color you chose) and I'm surprised how much I love them! Great job :happydance:

You said that Fixation is your favorite sock yarn, but isn't it a DK weight? How do you adjust regular sock patterns to use this yarn? I'm very interested...

Fixations is sport weight. I knit it rather tight, so it's more durable. With this pattern, I just had to go 1 needle size down. (which is 0.5 mm here in the Netherlands)

Thanks all. I agree with everyone saying it's to bad you have to wear shoes over it. That IS to bad, but well, I know they are there and they fit much better than store bought socks, and I had fun knitting them.
