How do you like dancing? How much you know about "rumba"? You can learn more here. But "rumba" today means new socks for me!
Again, with me stealing the photo trick from nona, you can now move your mouse over the photo to see the socks comfortably nestled in my new red shoes.
I really like this cotton/wool blend sock yarn because it knitted up into a thin and comfortable fabric. The slight elasticity makes the socks fit even more snugly. A very nice and economical ($2.99 per 50g/253yds ball) sock yarn for summer time.
As you can remember, I started using this yarn for the Chutes-N-Ladders pattern, which I found to be not very suitable. So, I used the measurements from that pattern and switched to a 5k 2p ribbing. Here you have another shot of the socks:
Yarn: Dancing from KnitPicks (41% Cotton 39% Wool 13% Nylon 7% Elastic) Col: 23587 Rumba
Gauge: 36 stitches for 4"

In my last post, Susanne said she had problem posting link. Since she didn't leave any means by which I can contact her, I hope she is reading this. The html code I use for posting link is this:

I hope you can succeed in putting links on your blog, Susanne.
