I thought I posted this, but I guess not since I can't find the post. :teehee: Anyway, it looks pretty neat so if someone wants to do it you can start a KAL here in our own KAL forum as well for us. I would, but I can't start it yet so I'm copying the instructions to save for later so I can print them out, too. ;)

Uhhh...good question. I kind of figured it didn't matter too much since it's a Christmas sock and not one for a human.. :think:

ETA: I looked it up on google and came across this..

Jumper Weight

Usually a Four Ply Fingering Weight. (http://www.yarnfwd.com/tension.html#fourply)

This makes sense since you are going to doing fair isle. I'm glad you asked because I probably would have gone with worsted weigh. I think you could go up to a DK and be safe, but the sock would be bigger.

jumper weight is similar to dk weight.
