I finished a pair of socks the other day and I'm just now getting around to putting a pic of them up on the blog. These are Lion Brand Magic Stripes sock yarn (which has been discontinued); Purple Pattern on US2 Knit Picks knitting needles, toe-up. This yarn is super wash wool; it's not as soft as a merino (I'm not sure what kinda wool it is). I'd call it a work-horse yarn; it does soften up a bit after its been washed a few times. If you remember the Bunny Puke socks; this is the same kinda yarn.
