Knitting: Socks #2 for Lesotho
I also dearly love this wool yarn. Since it came from an unraveled thrift store sweater (which was handknit by an invidual), I have no idea the exact fiber percentages in this yarn. But according to the bleach test, this is indeed animal fiber. It's the softest, squishiest animal fiber I've felt yet (well, the baby alpaca ranks up there, too), and I loved working with it. I suspect the Lesotho children are going to love these socks!
If you're interested in trying these, you can find the Waffle Socks 32 pattern on Ravelry. I highly recommend it!
