What would you guess this project is? The yarn is fingering weight, and the needle size is 2. And yes, it looks this weird in person.
It's... socks. Okay, it's a sock. It's knitted not from the cuff down, not from the toe up, but sideways around the leg and foot. The pattern is called "Pixie" from The Enchanted Sole by Janel Laidman. As far as I can tell, the pattern is written perfectly. I haven't run into any problems yet. It's just... weird. Nice and all, but weird. Kinda like a blogger you might know...
