Did someone here knit some socks in Malabrigo? I have a skein - think it would easily have enough yarn - but am unsure as to needle size. I am thinking maybe 4's or 5's?????

I know! Now I'm thinking that maybe if I use Malabrigo, I'll actually be able to knit a pair of socks, just as I won't want to give up on that yarn! :lol:

The suggested needle size for mmm....Malabrigo is an 8 I believe, and that gives a fairly stretchy fabric. I probably wouldn't go much smaller than a 6 for socks, but I lack much sock experience. Earthchick, what needle size did you use??
