LOL I was about to post a similar question, but when I came on I noticed Mason posted this topic. Great minds think alike.

I bought some Omega Sinfonia cotton yarn today at Hobby Lobby. I am finding that wool socks, no matter how soft the wool, make my feet itch. Before going over to "the dark side" and using a worsted weight acrylic, I decided I would try a sport weight cotton. It's like having a death match between my DPNs and my yarn. The Sinfonia splits terribly and it keeps sticking to the needle tips, even though my stitches are rather loose. I'm thinking it may be the aluminum needles. I prefer to use bamboo when working with 100% cotton yarn. Ah well. You live and you learn.
