Comments: Cascade sock yarn is really nice to knit with. It's soft, but not too soft, and has good stitch definition. It also has a very sensible price and decent yardage (400 yds/100gr) There should be a good market for yarn like this, especially in these economic times. Cascade is getting it right with this one, as they have with their 220 yarn. Good price, good value.
On the left are my size 9 socks (and they aren't small), and on the right his size 13. It's really hard to grasp the difference until you see the two together. And the black one hasn't even been blocked yet in this photo.
I really kinda like this guy. I'm planning another pair of dark dress socks for him.
