What could be better than knitting one of Chrissy Gardiner’s Toe-Up Socks? Knitting socks with cashmere! Introducing Temptation, a new yarn from Abstract Fiber. 10% Cashmere, 80% Superwash Merino, 10% nylon. We love this blend, and it's just perfect for socks. Heavenly soft, but with nylon for durability, this is the ultimate sock yarn. Only $30 for 100g of luxury for your feet. Temptation is also perfect for anything right next to your skin including cowls, scarves, and gloves.


We chat with Chrissy Gardiner, knitter, author, and instructor extraordinaire. Special thanks to Chloe, Lisa, and Maribel who were invaluable help at the Sock Summit.
