Renna, what sock yarn is your favorite?
Truthfully, I've not yet had enough sock knitting experience to have
a favorite yet.
The town where I live doesn't have a yarn shop. We do have a craft store downtown that carries a small selection of yarn, mostly acrylics. She has only recently begun adding non-acrylic yarns to her inventory. She has started carrying Cascade (Fixation, 220 [tho not Superwash], and Sierra). I was so anxious to try something different than the acrylics I'd practiced with that I bought the Fixation.
I received a mini sock from a recent swap that had been done in Trekking, and I LOVED it.
I loved the color striping in it and I loved how soft it felt, so I definitely want to try it soon. I also bought some KnitPicks Essentials and Dancing from someone here on the Buy/Sell/Trade forum, which I'm anxious to use for socks.
Thanks for the list of what you've tried and your favorite. I always want to know what others like, to have ideas of what to get when I get a chance to visit a yarn shop on out of town trips.
