Grab Bag Socks

socks
women's size 9
October 2017
A month ago, I purchased a Grab Bag of sock yarn (enough to knit three pair of socks). The Premier Yarns brand was new to me, so I was eager to work with it.


I was thrilled with the results. The yarn is soft and has good stitch definition.

Yarn:
    Serenity sock weight (color DN108-08 Aquamarine)
    50% superwash merino, 25% rayon made with bamboo, 25% nylon

Stitch count:
    60 stitches

Needles:
    US size 2

This Grab Bag purchase was a good one: I would not hesitate to purchase Serenity Sock Weight in the future.

  5. Those are very cute socks. I haven't heard of that brand. If you are keeping them, I'd love to know if they keep their shape with the bamboo.

  7. Lovely socks but I took a second look when you said the name was aquamarine. I think of aquamarine as turquoise! Nice socks though. Do you find that socks with rayon hold up well?
