The best sock yet

I was going to cool it on the sock posts for a while.  I didn’t want to bore anyone who might eventually read these posts.   But I made the best sock yet and I’m excited about it, so I thought I’d show the internets.

I wore them yesterday and they fit perfectly.   The stretch over the day was minimal and they still were snuggly pressed to my ankles when I took them off last night.    I think that’s because this is wool and I’ve mostly dealt with cotton/nylon mixes.

I think they also look great.  That has nothing to do with me though, I just splurged on some pricey yarn.   This is Feza Yarns Uneek 3008, or as I call it, “Bumblebee Massacre.”   Unfortunately, I think this line of yarns has been discontinued but you can still find it on etsy and in some yarn shops for $20-30.   I think I got this one for $25.   Which, is more than I’d normally spend on my basic looking socks, but it looked so interesting on the shelf I couldn’t resist.
