This is the CookieA August sock club shipment.  The yarn is from A Verb for Keeping Warm.  It is 70% superwash Merino, 30% silk called Metamorphosis.  And, it is not fun to knit socks with, it is very stiff and hard to manuever on size 1 needles.

Usually I try to use the yarn sent for the pattern given, thinking that I will be able to gift them if they do not suit my tastes.  People also talk about how the socks “grow” after finishing.  I started making the large size, and even before any growth, realized that these were going to be too big.

I am afraid that this yarn is destined to become something else.  Perhaps a dreaded shawlette, since there is only 385 yards.
