A sock tube allows the user to get socks knit faster by making afterthought everything socks!
Stitch Count: 64 stitches
Gague: 8.5 stitches per inch
7.5" diameter tube
approximately 45" long
Simple Syrup base
1, 100 gram skein of 2-ply, fingering weight yarn
-80% super wash merino wool 20% nylon
Each tube is long enough to make at least one pair of sock, but you can still get multiple pairs from one tube, depending on the length of the leg and foot of each sock, and if you use an additional contrasting color for the cuffs, heels, and toes.

This yarn is hand-dyed and requires a little extra care. It should be hand washed by soaking your item in tepid water with a soap for wool. Gently squeeze the water from your handmade item, never wringing it, and place in a towel and roll up to remove the excess. Lay flat to dry.
Some colors may bleed, depending upon the ph balance of your water. To be cautious, you could add a color catcher sheet to your wash water.
