I love this sock wool! The colours are vibrant and fun and the wool itself is incredibly soft and really nice to work with.
I purchased for the beautiful colours but was pleasantly surprised with how incredibly soft this wool is and how nice it is to work with. This just became my new favourite sock wool.
And can hardly wait to finish! Yarn is lovely and pattern is well explained!!
Can't wait to start this pattern. I am doing a pair of socks a month and these will be my April pattern. I will post a picture once I am done
Hi, the Watermelon yarn is the second of the Biscotte yarns I have started knitting with. I first cast on a top down sock using double point Kollage square needles, size 2.5mm and I am just starting to turn the heel. It is lovely and soft and apart from having to get used to the slight tendancy to split, it is very nice to work with. I cast on the Watermelon sock, using the same pattern, same type and size of needles I have had to start over three times. I cannot seem to get past 4 to 8 rows without dropping stitches. The yarn seems to be extra slippery and no matter how slowly I knit I am running into the same problem. I have been knitting most of my life and cannot understand what the problem could be. Do you have any ideas? The only thing I can think of is changing to bamboo needles rather than the metal ones but the square needles are better for my athritic hands.
I look forward to hearing back from you.
These look really great and cannot wait to make them
I love this shawl pattern. I can't wait to choose some yarn for my project.
As usual the mystery yarn and pattern exceeded expectations. I can hardly wait to start my socks!
An enjoyable knit, easy to follow, and finished product looks and feels awesome to wear
Although I have not yet started knitting with this yarn, I do love the colors and it feels fabulous. Thank you for your quick shipment.
Easy to follow, really enjoyable to knit and amazing to look at and fabulous to wear
I was so pleased with my mystery sock yarn that came this month! I can't wait to see how it knits up. Self striping yarn is a favourite and the quality and softness of Biscotte yarns is always such a treat to work with.
The Chameleon colors varied a bit from the image, but I actually like what I got better. The yellow stripe as pictured is perhaps an orangey-lemon to pale lemon or white; mine is cinnamon to honey, lovely rich golden brown tints. In between the dark chocolate & mocha, the pictured color is salmon, what I have is white. The blue between the gold and chocolate is a richer peacock teal than pictured. It's really quite lovely and a joy to knit, looking forward to the next color to come to the needles.
The yarn itself is soft and smooth, it almost feels like it has silk in it. Nice loft, a very pleasant "squish" to the hank, and knits up to a nice light sock that won't feel bulky in the shoe. It would be great for gift socks, but I'm keepin' it!
Hi I have just started knitting with this yarn.
Can you tell me if one skein will be enough for 2 socks.
vielen Dank für die Anleitung - leider konnte ich das optisch sehr ansprechende Tuch noch nicht beginnen, aber ich freue mich darauf dies in hoffentlich naher Zukunft tun zu können
The sparkle in the Lumos is beautiful! Not too glitzy, but just enough to give your garment some pizazz! Love it a lot!
The colors are much brighter than the picture used on the website. My only complaint with this yarn is how tangled it gets while trying to wind it into a ball.
Sorry, still have not started this pattern.
March 9, 2017
This evening I cast on the Watermelon self-striping yarn using my 9" circular needles to make socks. In the two or so months since my sock knitting obsession began I've amassed several skeins of fingering/sock yarn either from my LYS or on line orders in my quest to find the "holy grail" of sock yarn. I no longer have to look any further as Bis-sock Yarn is the nicest I've worked with. It seems to glide off my little needles - being a continental knitter it's quick knitting indeed!
I also have the Knit me all night long colourway - both beautiful yarns. I'll be ordering more soon.
Cant wait to try to learn how to make this one. Im a newbie to knitting so this may be a challenge!!!
Quelle douceur pour une laine à chaussette.
Dye is lovely, and texture is perfect.
I am loving the way this yarn is knitting up. Beautiful striping.
a fantastic bootie pattern Ilove it I did get it awhile ago but lost it have made lots of pair
The pattern is very very nice,beautiful... Can´t wait to knit it. I promise a photo when i finished my socks
These colors are so vivid and beautiful and the yarn itself is soft and has a great hand. I cannot wait to knit these into my next Socks!
Great pattern and easy to follow.
The colors were not as shown when I purchased it.
I have not started the socks yet. I did order yarn and it should be delivered any day now. Once I get into knitting the socks I will let you know how I am getting on.
Great pattern, however I haven't been able to make them yet.
but I do not understand how to connect the 2 parts of the sock.
In overall squishy-ness and delightfulness I give it a 10 out 10. I am very pleased and can't wait to knit up a pair of socks.
Enjoyed that all sizes included in one pattern. Very versatile.
Looks so nice! Well written and easy to follow, thanks a lot for sharing that!
knitting concept easy and will work with other yarns too.
Beautiful but I havent had a chance to knit this one
I haven't found the yarn yet, but I cannot wait to knit these beautiful socks. The pattern is so well written, I don't feel I'll have any trouble even if there are new techniques I need to use. I may end up buying the yarn as shown, but there are sooooo many yummy yarns available now days, I don't want to rush!
Unfortunately I have not used this pattern but it is on my to do list
Such a creative pattern. It's next in line to make!
Love the pattern! Excited to start it as my next project!
Very nice yarn, haven't started my socks yet but will be soon.I am looking forward to working with this beautiful yarn
Love this pattern, will use more than once! Thanks!
This is a fun knit. Easy to follow instructions, and such a cute finished product!!!
I am in love with this yarn =)
Sorry but I didn't make them yet
I haven't started on this yet but have checked the pattern out. It's well laid out and looks easy to follow. Hoping to start on this soon.
Unfortunately I have not had a chance to work up this pattern, but I am looking forward to making the slippers! Thank you for your patterns!
