View Full Version : sock yarn for needlepoint

10-23-2007, 02:06 PM
My dd just sent me a needlepoint book with lots of patterns that only call for 3 or 4 colors of yarn for each project. I am thinking about using solid sock yarn instead of standard needlepoint yarn. Has anyone tried this? What yarn would you suggest? Thanks for your help.:sun:

It works fine. HOWEVER...if your sock yarn is wool and isn't superwash, make sure you shrink it yourself before you use it.
