I used RPM pattern by sock prOn
on size 1 US needles, the large size and knit to fit a US size 8
I think it was the perfect match for the yarn with a little leftover from each ball
I do recommend using a sparper pointed needles
very smooth knitting all the way around!
Thank you for the opportunity to be amoung the first to play with it! I would definately use again!

Look for them sometime next month!
