This is a bouncy fingering weight yarn that also works for accessories other than socks. Watch your yardage, though, as you need two for socks, and the total of the two is 382yds which may not be enough for large socks.
I used a skein of this to knit the 198 yards of heaven triangular shawlette pattern, and it was a nice match. The lace is simple enough that it worked with a multi-colored yarn. And what colors--such beautiful blues in the Royal Wedding colorway. The yarn was easy to work with, the bamboo and silk giving it a lovely handle. A good choice for a special one-skein gift.
I loved my other knit kit, but had to add my own darning needle to make it perfect. Now, one is included and they've redesigned the crochet hook to have two usable ends. Great for travel, or as an extra set of tools to keep at that spot where you always end up sitting to craft.
I have two of these kits. They are compact, useful, and great for traveling, and for keeping near my knitting chair. The only thing which they don't include is a plastic needle for working in ends--I have added one of my own, which fits into the compartment, though, so I am happy.
