When I first started knitting socks I would use it... if the sock was 100% wool... I would just knit with it during the heel and then again on the toe... I heard the same things... some would tell me that is all they ever do and it has never wore out on them... others would say it cut right through the wool...I did try and knit with it loosely I didn't pull it to snug...

Now what I do is just go down a needle size for my heels and toes and knit tighter... I think it's just a personal choice on what you feel comfy doing...

I had one knitter tell me why would you want to do that? I want them to wear out so I can justify knitting more socks for myself...
