I've finished the grey bamboo socks for my FIL. Not that I didn't enjoy making them, but towards the end, they did feel like some sort of life-sucking entity. Grey yarn being knit during grey days is never a good idea. And as much as I love the feeling of these, the yarn is very splitty, so I'd have to think twice about using it again (Kertzer bamboo). However... the feel of them! Oh my, they are soft, and squooshy, and cushy, and did I mention soft? My FIL has foot issues - high arches, and other things I won't get into, so he's always on the lookout for comfy socks. It has been my mission lately to be the provider of such. For Christmas, he got the alpaca silk blend, and according to my MIL, never wants to take them off. (She makes him - she hand washes them after each use, so he only gets them every third day or so). These bamboo ones will probably fill in one day of the rotation, so it looks like I'm going to have to find a third for him. Thankfully, my MIL is happy enough to wash the socks for him.
Sorry for the two days of silence - I had a couple of days of project training, so I was incommunicado for a while. The rest of the week doesn't look a whole lot better, so there may not be much from me.
Lucky, I will answer your email, I promise!
