Finishing a Project on the last Day of the Year

Hey Everyone!

Today is the last of the year, it has been a great day to finish up the pair of socks I have been working for the past three weeks.

This pair of socks is knit out of KnitPicks Chroma Fingering Yarn in Fog Bank. I used one of my pairs of 2.50mm size 1 needles to knit these up. Casting these socks on and knitting off the first row was a bear because the yarn is single ply, so it acts more like roving, which I hate working with. As I was working with it, the yarn would keep splitting which made the socks slow going to knit up.

In the end they turned out to be a nice looking and soft pair of socks. I will have to see how they wear. Hopefully they wear pretty well and they don’t wear out really fast. That would be sad at the price I paid ($9.99) for the yarn and the time and effort I put into knitting them up.

While I am glad I tried this yarn, I know I won’t be purchasing anymore of it in the future.

Fortunately there are other Fingering weight yarns out there that make better socks than the Chroma does.
