Autumnal variegated socks
Completed in May 2012

These socks were made from Drops brand Delight sock yarn, purchased at my favorite London yarn shop, Nest.

The colorway is #13. The fiber content is fine (75% superwash wool and 25% nylon for sock strength).

The twist is quite loose (or basically non-existent like a lopi) and so I really wonder how these socks will wear over time. Perhaps this yarn is better suited for fine baby garments?

Still, though, the colors are great. My sister picked out this yarn at Nest when she was visiting me in London recently. Big fun! Looks like my sister's "sock wardrobe" is creeping into 2012.
