Testing yarns…………I thoroughly enjoy the process.

I am so tempted to test out yarns that are new to me.

Premier Yarns sock yarn.

This is sock yarn from the Deborah Norville Collection, called “Serenity” sock weight.

50% Superwash merino wool ,  25% bamboo,  25% nylon.

Feels nice to the hand when  hand knitting and glides smoothly on the standard gauge knitting machine. I knit this pair, combining both hand knitting and machine knit techniques.

The colour doesn’t show up very well on the photo,  it’s brighter in real life, perhaps too vibrant. The self striping is fairly even throughout the sock, except for a spot near the cuff that I didn’t catch quickly enough.

I’ll post more about the yarn in a few weeks, after I wear test the socks. 🙂
