BTW, the bed socks are red, because that's Grandma's favorite color to wear. If she likes these, I'll make her some more that actually fit her.
I like this yarn, would use it again. It's soft and squishy, a little shiny and starting to get a little fuzzy after knitting. The yarn is Baby Alpaca Ampato by Plymouth Yarns, an aran weight 3 ply. Two of the plies are finer and have a tighter twist and are wrapped around a loftier, softer third ply giving this yarn texture, a bit of elasticity and a nice sheen. I'll have to try spinning some alpaca like this to see what happens.
These socks finished up so fast, I put one more knitted gift on the needles, a pair of fingerless mitts. More on those later.
