This is the first time I worked with Patons Kroy Socks and I walked away with a neutral feeling. I’m not very happy because it sheds worse than our Japanese Spitz puppy! I’m okay with it because it’s quite nice to knit with. The colourway I chose is a bit hard on the eyes though so had to be careful and not make mistakes because counting rows and stitches were god-awfully painful.
One of these days I would be able to knit a pair of socks without making any blunders. When I started the second sock, I left the first sock that I finished tucked inside the closet. So when I pulled it out to compare length of the foot, I was shocked to find that the second cuff is twice as high as the first one! As a result I almost ran out of yarn for the toe. So I frogged back a few rows of the cuff to finish the toe. *sigh*
