Cheating on my tofutsies - Sock yarn review

I am working on the second sock from my second skein of Tofutsies yarn, but when this arrived - I had to find a set of needles and cast it on immediately.

It's the sock yarn that I ordered recently from Ray. Just shut up about the spin/knit from stash 2007 - I could not refuse this color. The yarn is 75% merino superwash and 25% nylon and it knits up very nicely.

This is best of all - look at those colors come to life. I am trying a new stitch this sock. It's a four stitch basket weave. I like how it complements the sock colors without being too busy.

Enjoy that yarn. I'm finishing my first pair of Ray's socks, shades of purple... soft, nice color. Pictures soon as I'm done with the second toe.
