So, a little while ago, Kate sent me some gorgeous sock yarn.
It's from something called Three waters farm, hand painted in the Aunt Maude or Crazy Maude colorway, depending on which skein you believe. It's 100% superwash merino, fingering weight, 373 yards each.
My first thought was, "Wow! That's enough to make knee socks!"
I suspect it is. I think that's the plan, although I've never done it before. Suzi Anvin has this brilliant tutorial on how to make the perfect knee socks, and I think I'm going to rely heavily on that.
Uh, any other suggestions? Have you made knee socks before? This is enough yarn, right? Favorite patterns? Any advice is appreciated.
