Dutch Yarn Stash and more Socks!

Finally finished & took a picture of my first pair of socks with yarn that I bought while visiting the Netherlands in July. Of course I had to include the rest of my new found treasure...

The four on the right are Dutch made sock yarn and the rest [other than the small yellow yarn ball I got to make a scarf with] is Italian Meilenweit Cotton sock yarn. That's what I used first to make the socks I am wearing. [45% cotton, 42% virgin wool, 13% polyamid] -- machine washable. Great for Summer!

I did have to make adjustments for the stretchiness of the yarn, but it was nice to work with and I love the feel when I wear them.

I'm wearing them to the group meeting today

.... Sock makers take over the world!!
