Ok you sock people! I’ve made about 6 pairs now and am without a pair on the needles NO GOOD. I realized the other day that all of the socks I’ve made are rather big and bulky. So the next pair I make I want to be sleek and slim, the kind you want to pull on all the time. In fact I’d like about 10 pairs of those.
Then I dedided, wouldn’t it be nice to make a cashmere pair.
(did you see Martha Stewart darning ha ha her cashmere socks with Bette Midler. Martha says to Bette: “these are EXPENSIVE, did YOU buy these?” yeah right, Martha darn’s her socks)
Anyhow, sorry, uh, oh yeah, so any suggestions for a cashmere that would be good for socks? Or maybe I should use a blend?
I found this new yarn: RYC (is that Rowan?) Cashsoft 4ply,
“Suitable for just about any purpose, Cashsoft 4-Ply is a soft, machine-washable merino/cashmere blend. This yarn will make great mittens, socks, and hats especially.
Content: 50% Merino/40% Microfiber/10% Cashmere

That’s at Webs. Does that sound good or should I just go with all cashmere for a really luxurious sock?
