Standard

SoxMetallic_sm  Berroco Sox Metallic came in late last year – great colors and a bit of sparkle just to glam things up a bit.  I just started knitting with it and thought I'd report:

It's soft and should feel just wonderful on the foot.  The metallic isn't harsh at all.  The colors don't pattern or pool.  My sock is about half done – and I'm looking forward to wearing these!

Details:  I'm using size 2's and 64 stitches – I always do.  If you knit loosely, use a smaller needle size.

While this yarn is designed for socks, it is soft enough to be an excellent choice for hats, mittens and scarves.  Fun stuff!
