I hope that Pam likes them! I definitely like the way the second sock came out better (that’s the top one in the photo above). There isn’t a strong line where the instep stitches were joined to the leg.
I know Kris loathes this type of yarn… but I’m rather fond of it. You definitely have to take it on its own terms, though. And forget about identical socks – never gonna happen!
Even though this is a very simple sock, it’s not beginner sock yarn. The marled two-ply makes it very difficult to see stitches, particularly when picking up the sides of the heel flap.
This is a two-play yarn. I hope I have better luck with it than with the last two-ply sock yarn I knit with. This has nylon in it, though, so I’m hopeful. Also, I did some pre-darning on the inside of the heel flap.
I see Pam in about a week – I’ll report back!
