SweetGeorgia Tough Love Sock Yarn Product Review

The yarn has a spring to it so it's easy on your hands.  The result is you get a gorgeous sock with a ultra-high quality merino along with stretch and durability from the nylon. The sock pattern I chose is called "Lacery" a free download from Michelle Hunter's website.  I love her patterns as they are always written clearly due to her 30+ years of teaching.  If you get stuck, there are videos to teach each skill used to knit the patterns. This is a great resource for our customer and students in our classes.   I will rate this project with a definite A+++  rating as the yarn is lovely and does not split.   Give this a try and I think you'll love the result!
