    Argon sock question

    Hey guys I need some advice. I'm making a sock for my wBrr (something along the lines of the spindrift but different. )Anyway I'm not sure what cloth to use. Has any one ever used argon 67 for a sock? Any other suggestions? Thanks!
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )

    We are on the same wave length, I love the Argon especially the 67. I have a Spindrift, really dislike the color, I have been making a plan for what I might like a bit better. I am also thinking about the Argon 90.

    I thought about the Momentum, however, I have been very happy with the Argon, so I think I will stay with it. I have some extra fabric waiting for a project so I am going to hang a few yards over my ridge line and see how the fabric reacts.

    I am anxious to see what other members suggest.

    Argon 67 would be my choice for a sock.

    I've been searching for plans to make a sock. My vision is for half bug net half sock. Like Dutch's but I really want to make it myself. Any links? I'm still digging through this diy forum.

    I saw that one. I like it. I think I'm going to try and figure out one like Dutch's summer sock.
