Up until now I have only used this yarn to make hand mitts. It wasn't until Anne used this yarn for her Keukenhof sok pattern that I really entertained using it for socks......but I am really glad that I did!
The fabric is very soft and lightweight which is nice for late spring, summer and early fall. I am one of those people who does not do well wearing cotton socks.
It's either wool...........or sandals for this grrl!
It's been so darn rainy and cool here in the Northeast it will definitely give me a chance to see if wool and bamboo together are a good fit. ;)
One of the more challenging aspects of this pattern for me was the short row heel. It’s one of the reasons why I have avoided toe up socks until now.
This time I went slow and steady with the wraps and by George I think I finally have it down!
All in all this was a fun pattern to knit. Easy to memorize and the finished sock is a nice fitting one. Thanks Anne!
