These are made with 'Fleece Artist' 100% merino (it was a present from a very kind work colleague who bought it in Canada while on holidays) It came with the best basic sock pattern printed on the wrapper - I use it all the time as a guide when adapting other sock patterns.
These are made from 'vintage' wool bought at the Bendigo wool show last year - I used the sock pattern in the Rowan 'Yorkshire Tales' book. It is one of those 'two needle' versions that means you have a seam at the back. I have been always curious - so I knitted it. I was worried that the seam would be uncomfortable. I tried to make it as flat as possible. It doesn't bother me at all - but I would never do it again. Quicker to knit - but then you have to sew them up! Why bother...
These use Patonyle - they are so soft and lovely to wear - I used the 'Fleece Artist' pattern again.
