I think that I need to start over this sock. See, I started to knit it using twisted knit stitches (jersey torse). The end result is a sock that feels less stretchy than usual (or too thigh), which I find annoying and non-comfortable. Any opinions on that?

For a scarf, would you go for:

a) 50% alpaca, 50% merino wool
b) 80% Peruvian baby alpaca, 20% silk
c) 55% Super Fine Alpaca, 23% Silk, 22% Merino Wool
d) any of the above
e) all of the above
f) none of the above

Consider non-fuzziness, softness and warmth in the question. :-)

At last, I finished my first sock! [livejournal.com profile] baprime coached me throught this new adventure!

While starting the second one, I am already actively thinking about my next project. I found patterns and have been searching through many yarn sites, but unfortunately, I couldn't find one piece of the whole puzzle.

I need to find some worsted size (4st/1in, needle 10 US) yarn that won't fuzz, will be soft and warm (so I want to avoid synthetic fabrics) and that would and have any of those combinations of cycle of colors:

- black + red/burgundy
- black + red/burgundy + forest green
- black + red/burgundy + grey (medium or dark).

If anybody feels inspired or have seen such a thing, just drop a line. It'll be appreciated! :-)
