I love sock yarn, especially hand painted skeins, but I really don’t care for pooling. I created this design as a way to do something different with all those lovely hand painted skeins and break up the pooling. Using only 50g of yarn in total these are also a great way to use up the leftovers from your favorite socks. Don’t worry though; Prickly refers to the texture of the slip stitch pattern, not the feel of the yarn.
