Well last night at 11:00 pm(during PBS documentary "Kind Hearted Woman" I finished my first pair of kniitted socks. And they joy I felt when I put them on for the first time. It was in heaven!. They are 75 % merino wool, and 25 % nylon. Paton. Although the pics show a bit of brown (why I do not know) they are a lightly shaded greys and blacks. with a bit of twist in the yarn.
