OK. I had my doubts about the yarn, but I have to say I think I love this sock. The yarn feels much nicer knit than it does in the ball. And maybe I just don’t have very sensitive feet, but I don’t find it to be scratchy or rough to wear.
I can’t wait to finish the 2nd and start wearing them. I’ll be writing up this pattern for the Knitzi website.
This shows the full range in color of the yarn. The light purple seen on the toe was just about to start (after the grey) when I bound off.
