I'm working on a pair of socks, probably a guy gift, although I'm not sure how well these will wear. The yarn is Maizy from Crystal Palace. Can't seem to capture the color, which is more of a taupe than gray as shown.
This yarn is 82% corn fiber and 18% elastic nylon. It's soft, but really splitty and if you drop a stitch, it's unlovely picking it up.
I have two more skeins of this, in white. A pure white is not that easy to find in sock yarn, and that's why I got it, but I'm not looking forward to knitting with it.
And how many times have I tried making socks with two circs??? Quite a few, and I am still stubbornly old fashioned and return to the double points. Just can't seem to stand the dangle and tangle that you get with two circs.
