A few weeks ago, he mentioned that he would really like to have a new pair of socks. I know he is allready thinking of his fall activities!
I had this wonderful yarn in my stash in a burnt orange color, almost rust. It has flecks of colors throughout the yarn. Flecks of green, red and gold. It is a great fall color.
The yarn is 80% lambswool (no wonder it's so soft) and 20% nylon (which should make the sock more durable).
I had borrowed the Ann Budd Knitting socks book from the library. What a great book. It has so many details and great explanations.
I decided to give this yarn a go using one of the patterns in the book.
I used 5mm needles and a made the socks a smaller size than usual. The sock is a perfect fit and very comfortable and soft.
I still have some of this yarn available in my Etsy shop. It is reclaimed yarn from a nice sweater I took apart. It would be great for socks and so much more!
