Very pretty socks! I'm still using dpn's, but you've encouraged me to try circs. I love your choice of yarn for these.

Great colors Jan! Is that one of the self-striping sock yarns? If so, I may just have to make socks again and I swore I was done with socks.

Great socks, Jan! I'm working on a pair now, for a Christmas gift. Looks like the same yarn.

Great job, Jan!! They look like a perfect fit.
Welcome to the addiction :-)

I too have a sensitivity to wool but can wear it in socks. Go figure?!

Fixation is a cotton/nylon blend and Elann has Esprit that is basically the same thing. There is also Crystal Palace Panda Cotton, Katia Mississippi that is also cotton and sometimes I use Senso crochet yarn (cotton/microfiber) that you can pick up at Hobby Lobby.

Very pretty, Jan!! I've only made one pair of socks and they were little ones for my ( at the time) 3 yr old DD. It was fun, though!

Great job!
