:roflhard: And here I was thinking, "Wow, it's only $18.95 a skein and enough to make both socks!" I've paid more than that for sock yarn!

I'm suffering from sticker shock. I haven't purchased yarn for almost 30 years. This year is the first time for new yarn and I bought Caron SS on sale. I am having a hard time wrapping my brain around $20 socks and the mind boggles at what sweaters could cost. I think I'm going to frog some old sweaters and reknit them.

Truly a beautiful yarn!

?? Yarnzilla seems to be the only site that is saying that this yarn is Machine Wash -- all the other sites I've looked at say that Noro Kureyon Sock is Hand Wash ?? What gives?! I hope it's Machine Wash!

It is a wool nylon blend so in my book that means machine washable. I still drip dry all my socks rather than dryer.

For those of you with Ravelry accounts I found this page with Kyreyon projects (http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/noro-kureyon-sock/projects). Oh it knits up so lusciously!! :inlove:

:teehee: I was going to say "Wow that is pretty reasonable for Noro + Sock yarn :teehee:

It does knit up quite nicely from those links posted, I love knitting socks and am always looking for something new! I might have to try some:mrgreen:

Most sock yarn starts around that price, but really a lot of the indie yarn runs about $25 or so. I was thinking it was pretty reasonable. I have some on the way from the Loopy Ewe (color 102) that cost $18.50. Their site shows how each color looks knit up too.

I love the colors but all my socks go in the dryer so it's probably something I will not be buying. Just beautiful though.
