The Joe Sock, a Work in Progress
The yarn is from Elann. It is more conservative than Joe but, I thought it was a nice manly yarn. From what my gauge is, I thought I would use more yarn on this ball than I have. I guess the US 2 needles make all of the difference. This yarn is comparable to Opal. It will hold up to carpet quite nicely. Gary loves the pair of socks I made for him. I will get pics of his socks when I can get him to wear them and I have my camera handy.
This yarn is a superwash wool and nylon blend. My niece, Meagan said that is great since she can just throw them into the washer and not have to worry about shrinking them.
