I really am going to stop making rice socks now that I've got a brand new one for myself. I usually get my swatches on quilting weight, but I got my Jinxed Rust Lion on the organic cotton knit. The organic cotton knit is wonderfully soft, but it shrinks vertically more than it shrinks horizontally after washing. After I filled the sock I made up with rice I realized it stretches even more horizontally, which is perfectly fine for a rice sock to do. I just think it's funny.
