Sock Blanket Saturday

The cashmere square.

After last week's interesting experience with alpaca, and I thought I'd talk about my run in with cashmere sock yarn.  I picked up a skein of Kitchen Sink Dyeworks Luxe Merino Fine (rav) with 80% Merino, 10% Nylon and 10% Cashmere fiber content from the stash.

In colorway Irie.

It was all that you imagined.  Cashmere heaven.  I am so glad that I broke my rule about knitting with sock yarn leftovers.  I was saving this to knit up a pair of Rick (rav) socks.  If my current sock project is any gauge, I would be waiting a long time to knit with this.  I did the math too, I should still have enough to knit up a pair with at least three yards margin of error.

This will work.  I just know it.
