Edamame in July

These socks were knit in the boingiest yarn I have ever used: Soxx Appeal. It is even boingier than Knitpicks' Risata. I hated knitting with it but love the result, as these nicely hug my feet and legs all the way to the knee. I used one ball per sock, toe-up, stitch from my trusted book, and a funny curly bind-off which I have had no success photographing.
Now, I have to confess (although I still can't feel bad about it): I bought more yarn, so soft, so warm, so gorgeous you would eat it. At least, I mixed it with the rest of the stash to remain true to the rule of this KAL. But, dudes, that required some serious willpower!

"boingiest"- What a great adjective! It says it all. (It was such a good adjective, that it tempted me to look around the internet for this brand of yarn. The addiction continues..)
