Standard

Minimochibins This was the sorry state of the Mini Mochi supply earlier this week – but we have been resupplied!  Now we can all ooh and aah over these glorious colors.  Minimochifullbins

If you haven't seen Mini Mochi yet, don't delay – obviously it goes quickly. 

And since someone had to make the sacrifice and knit a pair of socks with this stuff, I offered myself up.

My socks are finished and, if I do say so myself, they are gorgeous.  The colors glow and they are yummy soft.

Now – as for knitting with this yarn – be careful!  It can split.  The good news is that it is tough – even when you catch it wrong and it splits, it doesn't break.  I switched to duller points in order to minimize the splitting.  I also don't know how this is going to wear on my feet – it seems awfully Minimochisocks2 soft for hard wearing.  But since it still seems to be summer, I'm not going to find out for a while.

I don't know if I'll make more socks out of Mini Mochi, but I'm looking forward to making other things – mittens and scarves – maybe a shawl.  The colors just suck me in.

And maybe, just maybe, I'll have to check out the heavier weight Mochi.
