I made a pair last month of KP Gossamer lace weight in colorway Sweetpea. It definitely takes longer, but I find them the most wearable of the 15 pair I've made this winter and spring. They are closer in weight to the store bought socks I wear pretty much year round. I definitely plan to make more laceweight socks. I got a pair from one skein and I think I have enough to make one more sock from what's left.
It's really not that bad to do. I didn't find it much worse than fingering weight on 2.25mm. It's nice to find a use for the 2mm dpns. I figure I better be doing it now before my eyes get too much worse. I can't see my stitches as it is.
