Knit Picks tweed


This is a really nice, super soft wool, and very reasonably priced. 65% superwash wool, 25% nylon, 10% Donegal. Because it has such a soft and silky feel to it, I felt I needed to reinforce the heels and toes with wooly nylon, although most sock wools that I've used, with a 25% synthetic content, didn't need it! Sock yarn doesn't count when stashbusting, right? :-) It might not look like it, but I really am continuing the effort.

Hi, this is my first time visiting your blog. I really enjoyed myself. You have lovely projects here -- hats, socks, fingerless gloves. And I love your kitty. I grew up with a kitty very similar. We called him Tigger, and I think he would have loved a felted kitty bed.

wow, really enjoyed running through your blog and looking at all your nifty sock/mitt/cap projects. especially like those Frankies because I too cannot bear to toss out small balls of self striping/patterning sock yarns...i see a pair of frankies in the future! nice to meet you.
