Time to catch up on back projects. I started this next pair in April 2015 and finished them in July in time to wear to work at the start of the new school year.
As per usual, I made them toe-up, two-at-a-time with a gusset and heel flap. The pattern is a simple k5, p1 ribbing. I think that would be too wide for some colorways, but since is colorway has enough going on I think that gave it some focus.
The yarn is Fortissima Socka Cotton Color by Schoeller+Stahl. The colorway is 6504. The yarn is a fingering / 4 ply with 45% Cotton, 42% Wool, 13% Nylon. Each skein is 392 meters / 100 grams. I used maybe 2/3 of each skein. The yarn feels like it will wear like iron.
I’ve worn them a few times. For this hot climate that amount of cotton does make them cooler, but they still feel like a wool sock, which I like. I love that I can wear them with tan or blue slacks.
