But a recent visit from Jordan, who handily knits socks between drafts of her dissertation, prompted me to try again. And aided by advice from Jordan and Purls of Wisdom, I now have a complete pair of hand-knitted socks!
The yarn was custom-dyed by sKNITches in the Mint Mocha Latte colorway on a merino-cashmere-nylon base: cashmere for softness and nylon for that little bit of stretch and strength.
Chuffed with my latte leggings, I already have another pair on the go, this time in sKNITches' Collegiate colorway. Though considering the time of year, perhaps I should have cast on in Caramel Apples!
