Super cute, huh? I bought this yarn on clearance several years ago and have been waiting for a good project for it. It's 55% nylon and 45% acrylic so I've always sort of avoided using it for regular socks since I prefer a warmer wool blend. But, you don't really want wool in a pair of socks that you are going to be working out in, so, huzzah!, the acrylic yarn was perfect! (And it appears that Kristin owns an awesome pair of peacock pants that match the socks perfectly!)
