The last of the sock ghosts in the UFO cabinet have been laid to rest. (*snort* Where did I come up with that phrase?!) Hopefully these will be the last socks that take me 3+ months to complete. The problem with this, besides the obvious, is that the longer a sock lingers around, the more likely I am to think “it’s the needles!” and switch to another pair of needles that I’ve been eager to try – messing up the gauge, of course.
As the name suggests, this yarn is better suited to crocheting (which apparently doesn’t mind splitty, snaggy yarn so much). A knitting gauge is given on the ballband, but I wouldn’t recommend it except perhaps for scribble lace. The one nice thing about it is the little bits of shine:
Pretty, but whenever I look at it I can’t help remembering the trial of trying to pick up and knit short row wraps without snagging anything. Mom has adopted the socks (which nonetheless feel lovely on the skin) to the satisfaction of all.
