Corny Socks - Finished!
Yarn: Maizy by Crystal Palace Yarns (82% Corn Fiber, 18% elastic Nylon)
Color: Kelp Gray
Needles: #1 Quicksilver dpns (can't get used to using circs for socks)
Pattern: Purl Trax - See Side Bar.
Comments: This yarn splits too easily, and I had to pay attention, especially when doing the decorative purl stitches. However, it knits up into a very attractive fabric. It's pretty and so soft to wear. I haven't read anything about the durability of corn fiber (I keep thinking of corn husks and their fragility) so it remains to be seen how well they will wear.
Here's my rant for the day. Blogger's wysiwyg editing is so limiting, with its small window and the lack of photo placement that I am considering switching to another blogging product.
Can anyone give me some pointers on doing this?
