My sister wanted a pair of socks for her birthday. I was hesitant because I was still on my anti-sock movement but relented. I was determined to use an older stashed yarn and while perusing the stash decided on using an old skein of Bamboolicious Yarn by Zen Yarn Garden in a OOAK colorway. I'm not going to lie. I absolutely HATED the colorway when it was skeined but after I got it wound into a ball I started to like it. Then as I knit it I started to love it. I guess it's a lesson on not to judge yarn when its in the skein.
And another picture so you can see the cabling.
I will be finishing up another pair of socks for my father for his birthday which is later this month. I have no progress pictures of it but I've finished the heel and am working on the leg portion.
It'll be interesting on how it wears. It's a bit rougher than standard wool but not uncomfortable to knit with. As soon as I cast off the first sock I'm going to give it a wash to see how it blooms. If at all. I'm not sure since it's made with 25% raw bamboo fiber.
Hopefully I'll have a yarn update for the next post ;-)
Happy Knitting :-)
