It’s decided. I’m moving to
I packed the sock suffering from SSS and just turned the second heal of the pair I started instead.
A friend asked me why all the fuss about Koigu when Knit Picks has a merino sock yarn for a fraction of the price. The answer but it’s KOIGU didn’t do much to sway her. Since I have never actually knitted either, although I have collected both, I am in the process of a side by side comparison.
So far the knit pick is nice and squishy and the colors make perfect 1 row strips. The colors are clear and vibrant a fun colorway that’s discontinued. It’s a very nice yarn and when my 2 socks are done I will still have enough to make a baby hat or a pair of toddler mittens.
The Koigu is next with its blended muted colorway. I’m interested in how that one will knit up and how the actual socks compare.
Now while I am interested in how the socks compare, I’m an equal opportunity stasher so I know whatever I find I will still be buying both as I fall in love with a color.
