Two-by-two ribbing all the way
Completed in 2011, the year I knit a "sock wardrobe" for my sister


I purchased this undyed sock yarn from DT Crafts and Design, at the fabled Woolfest up in the Lake District toward the Scottish border.

The fiber content is 75% superwash merino and 25% nylon, with 365 meters per 100 grams. This sock yarn has a high twist, which I appreciate.

I really liked knitting with this yarn. I will buy it again. I had fun hand-dyeing this yarn. I knit the socks in the yarn's natural white state. I then dropped the finished socks in the dye bath with my favorite Jacquard brand acid dyes. I love this shade of shocking pink for socks!
