Paul socks.................one down......................

One of the Wollmeise Sockenwolle Paul Monkeys now done. This yarn is really divine to work with, very soft despite not yet being washed!



I used a non twisted rib on the cuff for a change with a no purl modification. Everything else is as CookieA's pattern states. I used 2.5mm needles for the sock but 2.25mm needles for the heel flap. :)

Oh Wow! Paul looks so much better knit up! Let me tell you, after washing..it is divine, no pilling..I'd sell all my sock yarn to only have Wollmeise!

That yarn is terrific! I much prefer the all-knit mod to the original when a variegated yarn is used.

What a lovely sock - the yarn and pattern work very well together. I have yet to try to Wollmeise but have heard so many good things about it - one day....

Whenever you fancy tackling the Kareninas I'll be right here to help although I'm sure you won't need it!
