Knitting and Crochet Blog Week - Day Six
I don't think cashmere is the most durable yarn for a pair of socks, but sometimes you just have to go with your heart instead of your head!
I knitted my Tidal Wave cashmere socks in March 2008 from a great free pattern which I think I'll probably knit again. I used some Hipknits cashmere sock yarn in a gorgeous Raspberry Ripple shade which I had bought at a great price from the Knitting and Stitching Show at the Birmingham NEC.
In November 2009, disaster struck - the most enormous hole in both heels! They had actually lasted over 1.5 years, which is pretty good going for a luxury yarn I suppose. They are still in the same state today, as I haven't got around to fixing them yet. One day..
Oh and by the way - Happy 70th Birthday Mom!
