The yarn was a present from my friend CL in Canada a few years ago. It’s made a lovely dense fabric and is very soft after one wash. However I don’t know how long the coloured flecks will last as they’re very loosely combined with the yarn.

This pair were knitted toe up, two at a time. The feet and body of the socks are in 3×1 rib and the cuffs 2×2 rib as I like my socks to stay up. I decided to use a simple rib as the flecks would detract from a more complicated pattern.

Overall I’m pleased with them but would have liked them to be a bit longer.
