Well, I've only done 5 pairs of socks so far. I'm currently working on ladybug socks in Opal Rainforest (ladybug colorway). I love the way it feels and how it's knitting up. I rather liked using KP Dancing, too.

But so far the opal is my fave. I have a skein of opal petticoat which is calling out to be knitted.

I opal. Another yarn I like is called Online I think. I bought Briggs Little Durasport online and I found it quit scratchy.

Hi all! I quite like the Moda Dea Sassy Stripes. It's a thicker sock yarn which makes the socks quicker and thicker, and the colours are terrific. No wool in it, which is good for me too. samm who wore her sandal socklets today with her silver thongs........ :D

Opal sock yarn!!! The only problem with it is that it's a tiny bit on the expensive side, but it comes in 100 g balls so that makes a whole pair with some left over...

I love it because it knits up to look like fair isle without all the extra work!

I love kemps merino sock yarn. So far it is my fav.
Here's what Iam using.

It's a liitle pricey but worth every penny.
If you are on a budget as Iam, I also love patons kroy in self striping and I use alot of bernats hot sox for kids socks.

I like Trekking and just about any Lana Grossa.
Knitting is more like tying your shoes than it is like patting your head and rubbing your tummy at the same time.
