I just finished my own pair of 3 X 1 socks in Malabrigo and they are every bit as comfortable as Sweet Baboo said they were. This yarn is truly fabulous. It knits like a dream and is so, so soft and smooth.
By the time that I got to the toe, I was checking and re checking my yardage (or should I say footage!) hoping that I had enough to finish. That little loop of yarn in the upper right corner is just about one yard of yarn. I had another ball, but I really wanted to keep that one for something else and now I can!
