Socks and More Socks

LynnH Fast Florida FootieWell, I showed you on Sept. 18 the two pair socks I’d finished on Sept. 14 and Sept. 17. Since then I finished one Fast Florida Footie in size 0 infant, as a shop sample for Rae in leftover Merino Big Print from the last pair.

So today I finished another pair. The first sock has been finished for over 6 months. This is a non-sock yarn, at least it’s intended for wraps and sweaters and hats… it’s not a densely spun yarn. But it’s wool and silk in DK weight and I knit these on size 2 needles to make them very dense for that yarn weight.

The yarn is Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool in “bright turquoise” which *is* bright but darker than that implies. More like intense/saturated but medium-to-dark with light flecks of wool.

Socks knit by LynnH based on First-Time Toe-Up PatternThey feel like whipped cream on the feet, so I hope they stand up to at least a little use before they give out. It’s definitely worth a try. Silk is pretty durable so it might just work.

    I think they will wear well, with 35% sllk. I am so certain of it that I bought some for socks tonight. Oscar’s feet and the nylon in most sock yarns don’t mix well at all, so I hope I can make him some whipped cream socks for his toes :-}

    How has the silky wool held up w/your socks? I was looking at it today and thinking of socks…
