The yarn was a gift, and it is gorgeous. Soft, squishy, a joy to work with. The color matches nothing I wear to work, which makes it perfect for the next couple of weeks at home. But here is what I know, to my sorrow. Any time I make socks out of anything other than wool, they only last a season. So I'll be enjoying these for as long as I can.
