Here's a pair of koigu socks knit from scraps from a Charlotte's Web shawl:
(These were both pre-blog projects. Shawl was a gift.) They've been great socks. I love the way they've worn over the past 3 years.
Well-- up until yesterday, anyway:
Before I noticed the hole in my sock, I was chatting with uber-sock knitter Holly about how I've never had socks wear out before*... yep, it's o.k. Laugh. After recent wear-outs, she's given up and now is going to use commercial sock yarn (nylon blends) only. I've decided to boycott Rowan Soft 4-ply for now.
Bad Heels! Bad! Bad Rowan 4-ply Soft!
(*I did walk right through my kitchnered toes on my first socks. They don't count-- that was just kitchner gauge incompetence.)
