I been reading about how everyone likes making socks but my feet are sensive and I can't wear wool so what kind of yarn are you making the socks out of? Are they thin enough to wear in dress shoes?

Candy, yes, you can make them thin enough to wear as dress socks. There are some very soft to the touch wool yarns out there, and unless you actually have a wool alergy, you might want to investigate them. It's heavenly to slip your feet in them.
