Waving in Yokohama

Waving, Not Drowning calls for gingering weight. Since Cascade fixation is sport weight and has elastic I started with 56 stitches. The stitch pattern is quite elastic so the sock was too large. Furthermore, the colors were not lining up well.

Tried again casting on 48 stitches and that is the sweet spot. The pattern works better on two circa than it did at 56 stitches. The yarn stripes at this size rather than flashes. Size is very similar to a medium sized sock in fingering weight.

Very fast knit. Knit cuff, leg, heel, heel turn and gusset in one long day. I started on way to airport knit through the two hours on tarmac during the engine check and then flight to Tokyo, bus ride to YCAT. Very satisfying to have something to show for the day.

Knit a bit during the conference today as well.
