Tofutsies tidal wave socks finished!

pattern: Tidal Wave (pdh)
yarn: Tofutsies
Color: 723 Put Your Foot Down
needles: addi turbo 2.0 mm
Changes: used a short row (sherman) heel

I probably should have gone with the pattern on these and done a heel flap/turned heel but I've been on a sherman heel kick and decided to put it on these. They fit fine but the short row heel pulls down the ankle so they ended up a little shorter then they would have been. This may be just fine really though since these are summer socks and don't really need to be very tall.

Now, a word about the yarn. In short, I love it. It is light weight, creates a cushy tight fabric, and has a pretty sheen to it. I've only worn and washed once but seems to be wearing fine. No breaks or knots in the skein. I also had plenty left. Maybe enough for some baby socks or hat. You can see from the photo on the right that I got different striping on the feet. I think I had a few stitches more that I picked up after the heel on the sock on the left.

I will definitely be getting more tofutsies.

Cute socks -- nice to hear you like the yarn, it's one I've been meaning to try.

Very nice! I just snagged some Tofutsies on vacation, and can't wait to try it myself. I'm torn, though - I also got some Bearfoot sock yarn, too. *drool*

I'd love to see your sock drawer, it must look like a rainbow. Very pretty!
