I have been test knitting sock yarn for Ellen at Fiber Curio and Sundries.com Here is their latest offering: a wonderful 80% Cheviot, 20% mohair fingering that I knit into a pair of basic top down socks, with a partridge eye heel flap and round toe. The yarn is crisp and lustrous, a natural dark charcoal. It makes a very sturdy, manly sock that can be machine washed and wears well.
