Picot Bind Off

Another pair of baby socks done in "Fixation".



I made a few changes in these. The original pattern from the "Magic Loop booklet", has the cuff being done in 2x2 rib. I think 1x1 suits the tiny size of these socks better. More notably, I used the Picot Bind Off (page 58 of "The Knitter's Book of Finishing Techniques") to end the ribbing. It gives a nice, stretchy finish and I think it looks cute on baby socks.

Absolutely adorable!

I've been thinking about ordering some Esprit from elann.com, which I think is comparable to Fixation. Now it's a done deal seeing the socks you've made.
