socks from trekking xxl - will they shrink?
hi all,
i'm making my dso a pair of socks from trekking xxl yarn. they're my first stocks ever, so i'm new to this! it's 75% new wool (superwash), and 25% nylon. any chance they will shrink a little the first time i put them in the washer? i started at the toe, and i'm almost at the heel now. i just tried them on his feet, and they seem not tight. not necessarily loose, but not snug. i'm tempted to frog them back to the next to last increase to make them a few stitches smaller, but i wondered if there's any chance they'll shrink a little the first time i wash them?

any advice would be appreciated, thanks!
