Noro sock adventure

My adventure with Noro Kureyon Sock yarn………………..I made a pair using both handknitting the cuff and machine knitting circular the remainer of the sock.

I was quite disappointed. The yarn “biases” and loops onto itself relentlessly. I think this yarn was meant for “weaving” not knitting. It has a nice homespun look and feel to it and the colours are stimulating. Overall, I think it is overpriced, when compared to other “sock yarns”.

Added info: the socks have now been washed in the automatic washer and air dried. I don’t see any problem for continuing to care for them this way. They do not appear to shrink.

I can now enjoy them with peace of mind.
