If you’re familiar with the state of my sock yarn stash, you’ll nod when I say “if I want new socks, I have to knit them.” But even superwash, part-nylon sock yarn needs to be babied in the wash and doesn’t play well in the dryer. And sometimes I just don’t have the energy to baby them. Sometimes I need to wear boughten socks.
These are my new ones. Those gorgeous ones I bought last September? All wool. Full of holes already. Pfffft. These have nylon though, and are heavier weight, and are by Smartwool. I think these will last better. And ooooh do I ever have a thing for Scandinavian knits right now. These socks and My Mug at the same time? YES PLEASE.
