Take a peak at my Japanese Stripes from Germany.
"Surprise" Noro sock yarn from my Ravelry buddy Wolltrunken from Germany. What does "Wolltrunken" translate to? Very drunk with wool.
How cool is that?
I just knit these toe up, stockinette with a rolled stockinette cuff. Easy enough. I have to say, I was happy to try this yarn. I probably wouldn't have bought it myself. It was a typical Noro knitting experience. Scratchy, but made bearable because of the interesting color changes.
The most surprising thing? These socks are actually super comfy. Scratchy on hands does not equal scratchy on feet. Plus they pretty damn cute. I won't be in a hurry to knit another pair with this yarn, but I'd never say never.
