As you all know, I knit socks. In fact, I quite enjoy knitting socks....but only on my own terms, which are as follows:
- They must be plain socks, because sock knitting for me is a mindless activity which allows me to relax.
- The yarn must be not only pretty, but durable.
- As I knit plain patterns, self-striping yarns (while no longer really in favor with the general knitting population) are a big plus. What can I say..I'm easily amused!
I've tried a lot of sock yarns over the last 7 years, but I must say that time and time again I return to Opal because when it comes right down to it, it's proven to be my best workhorse yarn.
And so, when I found some on sale at Webs for half price...well, was there any question?
