I just looked this up and the Cascade site says it is hand wash/dry flat. Thanks for info though. The colors looks great. I may try it for a pair for myself.
Has anyone tried Cascade 220 Superwash?

Welcome Lisa and Jodi to the KAL...no rules or anything feel free to join in on the chatter...just have fun

Lisa~You might be able to find a superwash in a worsted...ohh wait last time I was at my LYS we were talking about this...cause my dad wanted 100% wool thick socks...so I made him a pair and now he doesn't wear them cause of having to remeber not to throw them in the washer...anywho they were telling me I could use Encore Knitting Worsted Weight...it has 75% Acrylic and 25% Wool...they told me that was enough wool to make the socks comfy enough for him to wear and not make his feet sweaty ...also Knit Picks has a Swish Worsted that is 100% Superwash Merino Wool...and a bare that you could dye..

Jodi~Those are looking good!! I love the colors

The.Knitter~ YAY on the surprise!!

Welcome!!!! No rules (as Dustina said) just lots of chatter and knitting (socks, mostly).

Love the look of the Jaywalkers.

What about Lion Brand wool ease? It's washable, & available at JoAnns, Michaels & Hobby Lobby.

Totally cool surprise/secret! How much fun.

I hope to finish dh's sock #1 today, should be able to since there's only the toe to do...but I also have to clean the house and get it ready-we may have his brother & wife over for superbowl. Kinda leaving it up to them since Bailey stil had a fever yesterday afternoon...

No problem!

Dusinta~Thanks for the suggestion and the welcome! The Swish worsted looks good, and they have some colors that I think my DD will like. Thanks!

Thank you... I never thought about checking out the Lion brand yarns. I'll have to swing into Michaels this weekend.

You can machinewash cascade fixations. I do it all the time. I've never done handwashing on my socks and I've got 2 pair with cascade fixations atm.

jodstr2, your jaywalker looks really pretty!
