- I just love the color of this yarn and its softness. It seems a little thicker than some other socks yarns I've used, but it's nice because the socks are thick and warm (maybe that's due to the mohair content?). They seem to be holding up pretty well, without too much pilling. I will definitely make more socks with this yarn.
The only interesting thing on these socks is that I used the Eye of Partridge stitch on the heel flap. This was my first time using it and I think it's a keeper, especially with variegated yarn. It's basically the heel stitch, but with the slipped stitches offset on every right-side row to form more of a checkerboard look (compared with the columns look that you get with the normal heel stitch.)
