Yarn: JoJoland Melody Color # MS16
Pattern: My plain sock pattern
Needles: #2 Susan Bates Quicksilver double points
Comments: I thought these socks would be a breeze to knit with larger needles than I usualy use, but found the yarn quite slippery and I seemed to drop stitches and not notice until I was a few rows down the line. This may have been the fault of the knitter, however. Ahem!
I could have used bamboo needles and that might have helped somewhat. The yarn seemed to have less memory than some of the more tightly spun yarn and when I had to frog, it was difficult to pick up the stitches with even a darning needle because the stitches popped loose and that led to more picking up stitches.
My tendency is to match up striping, but in this case I did want both socks to look different.
In the end, I really like the colors in this sock!
