BF is a summer baby. So I did what I always do for his birthday (and any other gift giving opportunity). I knit him a pair of cashmere socks.
I used Jade Sapphire Mongolian Cashmere 4-ply - which is different than what I normally use - and the socks didn't turn out as well as I would have liked.. I had a lot of frustraition with this yarn, most notably the knots tied in the individual plies. Grrr. I wasn't too happy with the pooling either. Needless to say, I won't be knitting with this yarn any time soon. In fact, I already purchased my old favorite - Lobster Pot worsted cashmere - for BF's next pair of socks. Shhh. Don't tell him.
