The Project: Colourful Houdini
The Yarn: Regia Mosaik Color 4-fadig/4-ply
How Much Wear: Finished in December 2012 this was my first pair of well fitting hand knit socks. They got up to four wears a week in their first few months and are still part of my regular rotation.
How Did It Wear: Like Iron. The heel and toe are both doing well despite my tendency to wear through heels lightning quick. There's a slight halo now, but nothing too unsightly.
Buy It Again: If I see it again I'd love too. I already have a different pattern of Regia sock yarn in stash.
The Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash
How Much Wear: Finished this (2014) January but have still had a lot of use as I use them as a bed sock
How Did It Wear: Meh. It's quite full of pills. but they do spend a lot of time under a duvet so I'm not disappointed.
Buy It Again: For a project with less wear perhaps...
The Project: Putin Punchers
The Yarn: Crystal Palace Mochi Plus
How Much Wear: Yes, these were finished just one short month ago. I've worn them only on my hands when I'm doing nothing with them and yet...
How Did It Wear: Let's just say it didn't. It pilled just from being worn under my coat cuffs. I expect little strength from such a lofty single but this is ridiculous.
Buy It Again: No.
The Project: Autumn Evening
The Yarn: Easy Knits Deeply Wicked
How Much Wear: All the time. During storms, at the allotment, walking to the shops. In places it's likely to get mud on it or tomato sauce.
How Did It Wear: Again, like iron. Can always be trusted to go into the wash and come out fine.
Buy It Again: Already have.
