One down

Finished one of the hemp blend socks:

Finished hemp sock.

It's thinner than my purple comfort socks are, but still warm.  The reinforcement thread feels a little odd, but it will probably soften in the wash.  I'm supposed to handwash this yarn.  Forgot my ferocious tension the first time and bound off without thinking, had to undo the bind off, put in a new piece of yarn, increase one stitch every four, then bind off again.  I'm glad I went back and made the change, it's easy to put on now.

Project specifics: DZined sport weight wool hemp and mohair yarn, size 2 bamboo dpns, Sherman Socks pattern with 2x2 ribbing down the foot.
