- This yarn is nice and soft, and has has held up quite well so far. However, the red has bled just a bit into the natural-colored sections. This may be due to the way I wash them -- by just throwing them in a cool water wash with rest of the other dark clothes. I cannot be bothered to handwash socks. Bah.
I made these for my husband to celebrate the Red Sox winning the World Series (he is a big fan). It took a while to find a red color that seemed right.
Update, Jan. '07: These socks have now worn through on the ball of the foot. Interestingly, the natural color on the heel is still fine -- just the red has worn out.
