Here's my thing.  First of all, I'm hating this yarn.  It splits like crazy and one of the plies is stretching more than the others and it's causing bunching along my working yarn.  Aside from that, I'm making these socks (my first attempt at socks):


So far, so good, besides the 2 hours of my life I'll never get back when I was trying to figure out the figure eight cast on.  Anyway, I'm getting gauge.  I'm doing the small size.  But, these socks look huge!!!!  I'm making them for my husband and I've tried them on his foot and they go on without having to stretch at all.  They slip on like a freaking baseball hat or something.  So, my question is, will these shrink at all after washing?  They need to shrink a bit or else they'll just be falling off.  And it will seriously piss me off to spend a buttload of time on these things only to finish one and have it be too big and not shrink.  I'd rather just start a different pattern if that's the case.  So, any experience with this yarn?

"Yeah we don't take orders well.  Unless they're to get on the dance flo'.  Or raise the roof.  Or make some NOIZE...with a Z!"
