Interesting green socks with some wicked pooling
Completed in 2011, the year I knit a "sock wardrobe" for my sister


These socks were knit with Filo Blu brand Triathlon sock yarn.

Fiber content is 75% wool, 25% polymid for strength.

You got to embrace the pooling! Once I got over the initial shock, it was actually fun to see how and where the dark navy color would pool.

After I finish knitting a pair of socks (two always knit at the same time), I always handwash them well and block them.

When I washed these socks, though, oh boy they bled like the dickens! It always disappoints me when big corporation/manufactured sock yarn bleeds in the bath like this. I worry the yarn will continue to bleed when my sister washes the socks.
