http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer07/PATTbreeze.html

My mom wants me to knit her a pair of socks  and I thought Breeze would be a good start, plus I love them, too.

I haven't decided what yarn I'll use but I'm thinking of using Tofutsies
http://www.soysilk.com/tofutsies.html as my LYS has it in stock for $15.95.

Anybody else in? I didn't see another KAL, so I'm sorry if I'm reposting.

Already finished a pair of these, using one skein of koigu! I highly recommend this pattern--goes fast, and they're the perfect height for sneakers in the summer.

That tofutsies yarn looks so great!  The woman at my LYS said it had clam shells in it and I'm allergic so I'm avoiding it until I find out if it is safe or not.  Anyone know?

Well, I've never made socks before (or even attempted) and I'm a bit scared (okay, TERRIFIED), but I could try this. =/ I love how they look!

Talk to your doc to be sure.  There was a thread about this (search tofutsie in Craftster to find it).  The general thought was that the allergy is usually triggered when you eat shellfish, but that having it on your skin is different.

The yarn feels really nice, but everybody I knit with has decided it's too busy for patterns.  For knitting plain socks it's awesome cause the colors make fun designs on their own, but a lacy pattern gets lost.

Don't be scared, they are so fun!!!  And weirdly easy.  Trust me, I thought they were scary, too...

I've finished one pair using Tofutsies yarn, and they're simply wonderful. I was getting really scared about having to do 3.5 repeats for my HUGE feet but when you wear them it all evens out. The varigated yarn does sort of lose the pattern a bit, however, I like it especially as the scrumptiousness of the yarn is sooo worth it.

Is anybody else puzzled about why you have to break the yarn before starting the heal? I just started the heal w/out breaking the yarn and it looks fine and doesn't seem to affect the fit of the sock or how it looks.

Will post pics soon, have to download and deal with vacation pics first.

I didn't break the yarn at that point either. I think the reason she did that was so you could start the heel flap on a certain side (RS or WS), but if you know how socks are constructed, modifying that little bit wasn't a big deal.
