FO: My Cup of Tea

Here’s an unpopular opinion:  I don’t like Wollmeise sock yarn.

Pattern is My Cup of Tea, yarn is Wollmeise Twin in Aquarius WD.  I’ve knit these toe-up so the pattern is flipped.  I started out trying to reverse the chart but less than a repeat in I gave up on that because it wasn’t working.  I used a Fish Lips Kiss heel.

I did not enjoy knitting with this yarn.  Supposedly it softens up a lot when you wash it (I haven’t washed these yet).  It felt like knitting with cotton and it hurt the tips of my fingers, especially while knitting decreases.  I’ve got two more skeins of this yarn in different colors but I don’t think I’ll be knitting socks with them.
