Hi All,

Has anyone used Berroco sox yarn? I received a skein for at a Christmas exchange and am in the process of knitting the socks. First one is done and have started the second, the colors are ok. A little to much orange in the skein I received, but my problem with it is, it doesn't feel soft. It feels a little rough, will that go away after washing it? I have been making a pair w/ LL sheperd sport (very soft) but stuck on the pattern, will meet w/ my friend tomorrow and get going again. My first atempt at toe up socks.
Have a great weekend. Any knitters in the Myrtle Beach area, remember Sat, Feb 28 is the Knit In at the Senior Center form 10-3.
Hope to see you there. I'll be at the felting table.

Jane

I used it and liked it much better after washing. Check out this review http://www.knitting-socks.com/berroco-sox.htmland http://www.knitting-socks.com/berroco-metallic-sox.html

Thats an idea, finishing up the LL socks, they feel soo good. Will try washing for the second sock.

I've used it and found that it softened up after washing which I know doesn't help much for the knitting but nevertheless... Maybe washing the skein before knitting would help your hands.

The Berroco Sox yarn is 75% superwash and 25% nylon
The colors are very intense.

If you mean the acrylic yarn, then yes, I have. I knitted it on US size 1.5 needles. Size 1 felt hard on the hands. If your gauge turned out the same as mine and you used size 1, then maybe it does come out feeling hard. Then again, that may be the nature of acrylic yarn.

Time is never a factor when joy is involved.
