I don't have a lot of experience in making socks, but I am working on the second sock of a pair using Deborah Norville Serenity sock yarn I got from Joann Fabrics. I really like the colors, and it feels nice completed. Of course, I don't know what will happen when I start wearing the socks or how they will wash up. I'm waiting to finish the second sock on an upcoming plane trip. Socks are a nice, portable project for flying.
