I cast on for socks three times before I was satisfied with the result. The yarn stood up bravely to this abuse. It's hard to find a stitch pattern for handpainted yarn, that will pool no matter what, other than good old stockinett stitch. I found two ways to make it a little bit more interesting, and one way you can see here for yourself. I like the result. I made the leg 7" long, and the foot is for size 10 1/4", and I still had left over yarn. I could have added 1" to each leg easily.
pattern: my own
needles: for cuff and 3" of the leg - 2.5mm, for the rest of the socks 2.25mm 5 DP
size: 10 1/4"
Cast on: 64 stitches
start-finish: August 23 - 25
Thank you, Christiane, for giving me the opportunity to experience this lovely yarn. I would love to try this for a scarf, even as heavier weight yarn, or for a sweater, this would be so great, with a nice drape I'm sure.
