Last May my mom, my son, and I jumped in the car and went to the Magnolia State Fiber Fest in Vicksburg, Mississippi. One of the vendors there was Knitting Rose of the Knitting Rose Podcast. My son went straight to her Budding Sock yarn and picked out this vibrant colorway for his next pair of hand-knit socks. The special thing about the Budding Sock yarn is the fiber content; it is 10% bison fiber and 90% superwash merino. The bison fiber is machine washable so these socks will be able to be thrown into the wash with all the regular clothes. That makes them perfect for boys who sometimes forget about the ‘hand wash only’ basket. I am curious to see how they hold up during the fall and winter as we are planning to visit the Magnolia State Fiber Fest again this spring. Happy stitching.
