I finished the first of my pair of Tofutsies. :happydance: I absolutely adore the sock :teehee: , but dislike the yarn :-x I may never make another pair of them. It's like knitting with embroidery floss!

The sock is soft, thin, silky...wonderful.

I just bought that yarn to make socks for myself. I'm really excited because I can't wear 100% wool and it seems sock yarn only comes in that or in alternative materials with icky colors. I like the colors Tofutsies come in.

Very nice sock!

:cheering: Thanks for sharing.

I'm currently working on one for my DH and have another skein in colors for me. I really like the yarn so far. My first sock is made of austrailian wool and size 5 DPN's. I'm using 2 KP classic circs on the Tofootsies and I can't wait to finish them.

I got a couple of balls of these when Webs accidentally listed them at 1/2 the retail price, and honored it! It does look really thin. What size needles are you using? Or more importantly, what gauge are you getting?

Hi Nikki,

I'm using a size 2 and getting 8 stitches to the inch, as indicated on the package label. DH is trying them as I go and they are fitting fine. The pattern calls for 7 stitches to the inch though.

I hope this helps! Helen

Second sock is finished. And I have enough left over to make socks for my grand daughter..... darn it! :shrug: Hmmm maybe I'll combine it with something else so it's not so small and splitty.....http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v478/SamplerLady/Two/th_fiberarts001_edited.jpg (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v478/SamplerLady/Two/fiberarts001_edited.jpg)
