This one is a little on the plain side. (Well, for some. Maybe a little too wild for others !)
I like the variable patterning of the black, going from dashes to lines.
Fortissima Socka Cotton Colour is 45% Cotton, 42% Superwash Wool and 13% Nylon. And this example is colourway # 6503.
The socks are size Large, knit on the 72 needle cylinder.
I've got some Large acrylic blockers that are wider than my antique wire blockers. I thought it would be good to use the wider blocking with the cotton content.
I've knit with earlier versions of this yarn before, and had a pair (with a boo boo) for myself. I found they shrunk a little over time and I always made sure to put them on the blockers to keep them wide enough for my manlegs.
And here are another few pairs of Schaefer Anne. Both of these are size Medium + and are knit on the 72 needle cylinder.
frogged the work as I didn't like the colour pooling.
BTW, the Anne series of sock yarns do not have colour numbers. Each are individually painted, though I presume a small batch is painted similarly with each lot as I've received pairs from Schaefer that are quite close.
I've noticed that different skeins have different numbers of colours, and different proportions of colour banding. I think I've noticed that the skeins which perform to my liking on the 54 needle cylinder have 7 or 8 colour bands that are approximately equal in size.
