These socks were pure pleasure to knit! The pattern is a 6 stitch, 8 round repeat that is easy and fun and the yarn is soft, strong and has a lovely, gentle sheen. Look at this yarn up close ... and even closer. I've never knit with bamboo before so I don't even know that shiny swirl through the yarn the bamboo??
The book is filled with new stitch patterns and many different options for constructing socks - I'll be trying more of them!
