Eye Candy Friday: Wee Sock

Tofutsie Sample Sock
A wee sample sock for the shop

SWTC Tofutsies
Color #723 50% wool, 25% Soysilk, 22.5% cotton, 2.5% Chitin

The Tofutsies feels quite soft and nice to knit. I used US0/2mm Sox Stix. Many knitters report having to go down at least a needle size to get a gauge they like. I stuck with my usual 2mm and he fabric was fine - not too dense, not too loose, a little cushy, and like it would make a nice summer sock. Some knitters have also complained that the yarn is splitty. Maybe it was the fairly blunt Sox Stix (OK, well as blunt as a US0 can be) but I had no trouble with splitting at all.

Mimi is planning to order some Tofutsies for the Shop, so come and get it.
