It's either a sport or a DK weight, at that gauge.

It's actually worsted weight -- recommended for 4.5mm (US7) or 5mm (US8) needles. :D

Oh, I just saw #5 needles, and that sounded like a sport or DK weight.

The 220 is a definite worsted weight.

Did you get the superwash version of Cascade 220? I wouldn't use regular Cascade 220 for socks because you will have to handwash and if they ever wind up in the washing machine by mistake you'll have a pair of baby felted socks. Also, for socks you should probably use a smaller needle than what is recommended on the label.
