My Hominy Socks will be created with Regia Design Line yarn by Kaffe Fassett

Some of my sock yarns – none looked to have a sufficient quantity to use for my Hominy Socks.

I finally found 2 x 50 gram balls – well nearly 2. One ball is intact and the other has a smidgeon less. I may have to add another yarn to these socks but I will do that at the toes so that I am not making striped socks for all to see. I don’t think I could match the yarn now as I bought it whilst in the Netherlands more than 5 years ago.

sock yarn for Hominy socks

My Hominy socks will be created using Regia Design Line – colour 4252.

The label states that the yarn is dimensionally stable, hard-wearing, Machine washable up to 40 degree, and will not felt and can be dried in a drier and it carries a 10 year guarantee which sounds great But I just hope my socks will fit my feet well and I also hope that the Hominy pattern will not be too lost in the self patterning yarn. The most important thing for me in this exercise is that I conquer my fear of knitting socks.

And I will, I will, I will.

My yarn was made in Italy for Coats GmbH Germany. It seems it is now made by Schachenmayr Regia

It is a shame that I do not have the yarn in the pattern – I love the colour (Pumpkin Spice) and it shows off the stitch design well. I have found Fable Fibers – the yarn creator on Facebook at Fable Fibers
