I’ve been slowly replenishing my worn-out sock collection. Same pattern, same mods. I’m sticking to a “1 in, 1 out” philosophy and can now toss a pair of old handknit socks.
This yarn is Knitpicks Stroll Tonal sock yarn. The positive is that they really nailed the color – it stripes nicely and doesn’t pool (at least with a 60-st circumference on size 0 needles).
However, like most (all) of Knitpicks yarns, it seems to be very loosely spun. It fuzzed even while knitting, and I have low confidence about its longevity. But it was good to try the yarn for myself and satisfy my curiosity about it.

So instead, my latest success is this:
They were an instant hit. Sometimes, ya gotta know when to give up cooking for yourself and instead cook for the majority audience.
