I need to FINISH a couple of pairs of socks this week, if I want to stay on track. I had this Spirit Trails sock yarn in my stash for a bit - I loved the color, but avoid knitting socks with it, because for whatever reason, I thought it wasn't superwash. Non-superwash sock yarn? It felts on my feet as I wear them!
I was actually pulling this yarn out to swatch (!) it and throw it in the washer to see if it would felt - when I see on the label that it's superwash. Der. I immediately cast on for a pair of Whitby socks from Knitting on the Road. I had made a pair of these before I learned of the 'felting on the feet' issue - and I remembered that I loved knitting them... even if I only really got to wear them a few times.
That, my friends, is a total of 8 hours of knitting! I'm almost to the heel of the second sock. I think I have found my secret weapon pattern for this contest. Gift knitting, anyone?
