Is anyone else playing with this yarn?
I've purchased 3 'flats' and just started knitting one of them.
It is a lot of fun to see how the colors play out.
I think this is a yarn for Fraternal Sock folk though.
If anyone else has knitted and washed a pair, can you tell me if the yarn softens after washing?
Thanks! Ev

I made a pair of socks out of flat feet. I believe it softens up; I have washed the socks but haven't worn them since. Check them out on Ravelry if you're a member.

I used them and they totally soften and perform better after washing. Check out this yarn review http://www.knitting-socks.com/flat-feet.html

Thanks for posting the link to the review!
I've got my first pair done through the heel flap.
Spring fever has hit with a vengence so I'm not certain when I'll wrap the socks up.
