    Finished these yesterday. The socks are basic 2x2 rib, toe up with FLK heel, using CoBaSi fingering weight yarn. Unfortunately I cannot wear them. Even after washing, then soaking in fabric softener, they feel like straw on my feet. I have a friend who will enjoy them 😊

      Funny how the same fabric can feel so different to different people. I think I'll have to get a skein and make something small to see how it strikes me. Cotton is really difficult because the makeup can give you extreme differences in feel. But I don't think I've ever found a bamboo or bamboo blend I didn't like. But then I love wool socks while a couple of my family members can't stand the feel of wool on the skin. Go figure...

      lovestostitch and KnitsWithHorses My feet have a lot of nerve pain and they are extremely sensitive. I’m sure it’s just me, you will very likely find this yarn to be great 😊

      knitter131 that makes sense. Sorry to hear of the never pain. My mom had diabetes for many years that caused neuropathy so she had sensitivity as well.
