To get to the details, I think this is Sensations Bamboo & Ewe, a blend of 55% wool, 30% nylon and 15% bamboo (or rayon from bamboo as it says on the label). I've used this yarn before and like it. I'm not positive, because the ball band was taken out of the cake, but I'm pretty sure this is it. The needles are 2.25 mm fixed circulars from Knit Picks.
I use a generic toe-up formula from Knitty Summer 2006, Judy's Magic Cast On here, the Fleegle Heel here and will use the Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-off here. This is my 85th pair of socks. I love sock knitting, but these have been problematic because of the dark color. It's really pretty, but hard to work with because 99% of my knitting is done at night and this dark charcoal doesn't show up the stitches in the lighting in our family room.
I'm linking up with Judy's On the needles Friday. Maybe linking each week will get me going!
