Do any of you have a favorite type/brand yarn that you use for socks? I'll be tackling my first pair of socks (compliments of an awesome tutorial recommended by one of the KH members) as soon as my KP package comes (new needles and yarn! eeeeee!!! :happydance: ) Just wanted to get y'alls input! Thanks!:muah:

My new favorite is Socks that Rock. Great colors, great texture.

For a brand-new sock knitter, I'd recommend an inexpensive worsted weight yarn, like Lion Brand Wool-Ease, so you don't feel any pressure to get it all perfect.

If you would prefer to look around a bit at other weights and yarns, here is a link to the sock patterns at sockknitters.com. The patterns are listed in order by weight of yarn and you can explore what other sock knitters are using. Have fun!

I have knitted in lots of different sock yarns and I personally prefer the 4ply variety on smaller needles. Opal/Regia/Louisa Harding angora are my favourite xx
