I like to sample the yarns before the yarn arrives to the store and warehouse so that I better understand the characteristics of each yarn. I am very impressed with Tough Love Sock. This yarn feels like it contains silk even though it is a blend of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon. The colors are absolutely vivid as you can see from the photo. 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.\n\nThe 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!
