Thank you, thank you, thank you! Yes, I like the free-sole sock and would like to hone my technique. The green yarn is recycled sweater yarn, an angora/lambswool blend that I dyed with Kool Aid. The other yarn is Adriafil Knitcol. I have so much stash yarn, I don't think I'll need to buy sock yarn for the next couple of years.

I know what you mean about sweaters to unravel vs. to wear. I picked up a lovely gray lambswool Fair Isle cardigan that I intended to unravel. It was so cute I decided to try it on before unraveling it and was surprised to find that it fit. So, instant sweater!
