I was looking at the sock pattern for wool ease socks. Which type of wool ease does it use? The regular stuff?

I think I saw DK wieght in there somewhere. I think you would have some trouble getting gauge with the regular stuff. I just made a hat out of it and my gauge with #8 needles was about 3 st. per inch.

I get 5 st per inch with woolease with a size 4 needle. Here's a pic of some socks I made with woolease.

Same here -- I thought the worsted would be too think but I knit it on US4s and the socke turned out great :thumbsup:

(They do make sport weight wool-ease, which I was looking for, but I couldn't find it so I went with the worsted.)
