Pagewood Farm Socks Finished
Done on 2.25 needles, 74 stitches with Pagewood Farms Yukon (merino/bamboo/nylon) in the Prism colorways. This yarn is exceptional! It held up with 2 (yes, 2) FROGS. Once because I used the wrong stitch count and once because I didn't like the heel-and they are done toe-up. Also was verrry generous with 450 yards. Laura bought me this yarn for Christmas last year.. and I definitely be pleased with more! It is the nicest of all the socks yarns I have used to date.
This was the first time I have used Jeny's Suprisingly Stretch Bind Off. Simple, precise instructions made for an easy finish. It is the stretchiest bind off that I have used and probably the neatest. Will be using it for all my socks.
