I have heard so many people gush over the wonderful STR yarn saying that it doesn't pool and how lovely the colors are, so I bought two skeins. I have to say that the yarn is gorgeous and very soft and the stitch definition is unmatched. BUT, I started my first pair of socks with 72 sts on size 1 Addi's and it's pooling terribly.
I laid the sock out so that you could see the pooling in full effect. Although it doesn't look terrible, it's just not what I had in mind. So I need some help from you experienced sock knitters. I have an average size 8 foot. I need to know how many sts is good to use and if there's a better pattern for the Socks That Rock yarn than basic K2P2 ribbing. I just want something that will show off the yarn not so much the stitches in these socks. The colors really are magnificent. This is the Carbon Dating colorway.
