Cascade Fixation Tabi Socks


Project: Tabi Socks, Size 10
Cascade Fixation: 2.2 balls of apple green
Needles: Size 4 DP
Pattern:
Dimensions from "Sensational Knitted Socks" by Charlene Schurch
Elizatbeth Bennett's Perle Sock Program for the general directions
Tabi toes from Kate Atherley's Summer Sock Collection published in Spun Magazine

Not having the feet here to try these on is risky. My dinky 5.5 size feet didn't fill the bill and my sons huge ankles just stretched them out too much. I am counting these for knitpastis's Cascade Fixation Ankle Sock KAL even though size 10 ankles are not that tall...oops;P
I'm counting these toward Summer of Socks KAL, too!

Whoa now that's an interesting picture. Did you stuff them to stand on their own. They are cool!

What a *great* color! So perfect for PS! I think they are great!

Okay, the Invisible Man picture is freaking me out a little. :) LOL They are so pretty, and a great Project Spectrum May color. Hurrah for any knit that counts in multiple KALs too. I must admit, I hate knitting for people with big feet (like the size 12 slippres I knit my brother for Christmas!!).

wow...who are those for!?
the color reminds me of the incredible hulk, and i imagine if he were to put those on, they'd be invisible ;) hee hee!
great socks, barb!

wow, so they just stand up on their own? With the fixation being so stretchy, I'm sure they'll fit just fine and the recipient will love them!

Love your tabis. My friend's mom can't wait until I get there (Hawaii) next weekend so I can help her with the toe portion, which has her stumped.
