I know most people probably don't think of hand knit socks and summer as going together but I really like Cascade Fixation for nice cotton stretchy summer socks. Here's a pair that I finished yesterday using a modified pattern for the Buffalo Slipper Socks from Interweave Knits. I used Cascade Fixation and Addi Turbo size four needles, cast on 44 stitches and worked the pattern with an added 1" of stockinette after the pattern rows. I am now working on another pair in "Rasta" colors with picot cuff, casting on 44 stitches with the Addi 4's.
I'm off to take a shower and wash the day's rudeness off of me. I seemed to encounter more than my legal limit of A-holes today. Or maybe I'm just in a menopausal and hypersensitive mode. I understand that my patients are older but when they make crass comments when all I am trying to do is help them to be a little more independent, it still stings. Oh the joys of being a COTA.
