Yarns: Skacel Trampoline & Patons Kroy Socks
Fiber Content: 70% wool/23% nylon/7% polyester & 75%/25% nylon
Suppliers: The Knitting Room (now closed) and Wisconsin Craft Market
Modification: I did a wedge toe with a provisional cast-on, as I tend to do.
Chiquita requested that the toes and heels be in different colors, so I dug around a bit in my bag of sock yarn leftovers until I found something that would work.
Besides not being crazy about the patterning, I also wasn't super excited about working with the yarn itself. I hadn't used it before, but it has a colored outer layer around a white core. I assume that means that this yarn had the wool wrapped around a synthetic core. Unfortunately I don't know that it lived up to its name, as this sort of construction did not result in a particularly springy yarn. It wasn't as hard on the hands as a pure cotton or synthetic either. It just sort of gets an "eh" from me.
