I cannot tell you how glad I am to have these off the needles!
Pattern: Feather and Fan
Yarn: Yarn Pirate Merino/Tencel in Malamute colorway
Needles: ChiaGoo Bamboo 2.25 mm DPNs and Susan Bates 2.25mm DPNs
Dates: February 2 - June 3
Thoughts: Hmmmmmm. I have several. I think this will be my only pair of feather and fan socks. I just didn't enjoy as much as I have read that others have. I felt like I had to pay too much attention, which isn't something I mind, but I don't feel like I got a big enough payoff for the effort. The yarn is quite interesting. The tencel makes it shiny, and makes it a tiny bit difficult to work with. I was not enjoying the bamboo needles and the somewhat sticky yarn, so I finally, on the second sock, switched to metal needes, which made a world of difference, and enabled the socks to get finished much faster. I will be interested to see how the yarn wears as well.
