StrawberryLime Socks - Finished!
Yarn: Kid Merino from Crystal Palace Yarns, Color 432
Pattern: My own remix
Needles: Size #1 Clover bamboo double points
Comments: This teeny, tiny, skinny, airy yarn takes a bit of getting used to in order to knit. I made the decision to reinforce the whole foot with Woolly Nylon, rather than just the toe and heel. It made for a more substantial fabric, and only slightly decreased the softness of the yarn. The yarn was already 44% micro nylon, so reinforcement may not have been necessary for longer wear. But this was my first use of Woolly Nylon and I wanted to try it.
