Stashbuster Giveaway: Cascade Fixation

Here is the shameful evidence of my dismal failure at knitting socks. It's beautiful yarn but I just can't bear to see it in my stash; the memories are too painful.

Here are the specs:

Two balls, one with only a tiny bit of frogged yarn, the other unopened, of Cascade Fixation color #9862 (gorgeous rust, green, lavender, and taupe). Each 50 grams of 98.3% cotton, 1.7% elastic which translates to 186 yards (spandex) or 100 yards (relaxed) per ball. Made in Brazil.

If anyone wants it, let me know in the comments and it's yours for free. If more than one person wants it, I'll use the very scientific method of writing your names on pieces of paper and letting my son draw one out of a hat. Only Barbara uses random number generators.

I would never turn down an offer for sock yarn. You can put my name in the hat.

Well, if there must be a hat, you can put my name in it. My little Squirrel Girls love socks made from that yarn!
(If you're really not ready to give it up, I can send you a pattern for kid's socks...)

I'm a fairly recent sock junkie, and I'd love to give the Fixation a whirl. Add me to the hat.

Hi, this yarn is probably already gone, but I'd love to be in the draw if it's still open. It's beautiful, and I'd love to try cotton socks (I've only ever done wool). Thanks
