Mac was very excited when this yarn arrived and i started making socks. Oh, the color, the "organicness" and the twist make this yarn perfect for the long-sought-after handmade "sport sock". The slipped stitch rib around the instep gives added support and keeps the socks from bagging out in between washes. Mac is sure these will serve her well through her many hours of standing in medical school and certainly through the long hours of surgery....
They could also just be the perfect sleeping sock.
