Impossible girl socks

The “Impossible Girl” socks  (Pattern by Madeline Gannon) were knit out of the Madelinetosh BFL (Blue faced Leicester) sock yarn.   I did not realize until I finished that they are 100% wool without nylon.  They may be a bit less sturdy, so I will use them for special instead of everyday.   I really enjoyed working with this wool and like the depth of color.  And next time I may reinforce the toe and heel with nylon – or maybe not.  It is sock yarn and may wear very well.

  1. LOVE the socks! I got the pattern when I saw you working on them. I’m not sure what yarn I’m going to use for them, but all of mine have 20 -25% nylon in them – BUT, I’d LOVE to use BFL for something! We had Border Leicesters when we farmed, and I have a special place in my heart for the wool.
