My first-ever socks with real s-t-r-e-t-c-h-a-b-i-l-i-t-y
Completed in May 2012

These socks were knit with Lana Grossa brand "Mega Boots Stretch" sock yarn.

The colorway is #710. The fiber content is 70% superwash virgin wool and 23% polyamid for strength, and 7% "Elite" for s-t-r-e-t-c-h.

These socks are unlike any other socks I've knit.

They really hug your feet. There's just enough elastic in the yarn to provide a little oomph to your normal negative ease.

I love it.

Granted, the actual ritual of knitting wasn't so pleasant. The yarn is very loose and twisty and splitty. So, it's not a joy to knit with. But, the end result, I think, is worth it.

Now I just need to find this yarn in a happier colorway.
