I'm starting a new series called Sock Endurance Monday, where I look back at socks and see how they're holding up, whether I still like them, whatever.
And where better to start than with my very first ever pair of socks?
|after 2 years|
The yarn is Moda Vera Noir, which comes in a variety of self-patterning colours from our local big box craft store. Their recent colour selections has left me rather lukewarm, but I've enjoyed some of them in the past.
The heel felted pretty much straight away, but that only made them tougher.
I didn't do the toe decreases well and there are big ladders there. They're not going anywhere.
The ribbing was too loose, but the socks stay up in a loose way.
They've gone through the washing machine and the dryer.
No matter how hard I try to wear through them, they show no sign of giving.
How would I rate them?
- Wear & tear: excellent
- Colour fastness: perfect
- Felting: some
- Pilling: little
- Fuzzing: some
- Washing: invincible
- Comfort: good
And there you have it.
