At first I didn't really know how it would work out, but why not give it a try. Since the sock yarn wasn't soft enough to go around mine or anybody else's neck I wanted to be on the sure side and this is what I found in my stash. Don't ask me what it is. The greenish one is totally fuzzy, the blue is something with acrylic, wool and viscose. That's all I can tell you.
I'm knitting it on 5.5 mm needles and it's getting really light and airy. I love it. I especially like the way the color changes on the fuzzy yarn. I was planning on knitting this as an early Christmas present for I don't know yet who, but I might just keep it for myself. Sorry, but it's growing on me. It's just funny what unexpected potential sleeps in your stash, even if that makes me the odd ball that is totally going against the grain. I was even thinking of using fun fur, but I didn't want to shock everybody too much at one time.
