I would recommend buying some Patons Classic Wool Merino, normally around 7.00 a 100 g skein, and it is on sale this week at 4.99. They also have Patons Kroy Socks - I recommend three skeins for a pair of socks. Two is just enough for women's. Both high quality yarns they sell. I was just at Joann's yesterday with my coupons and got two skeins of Kroy Socks, one Caron one Pound for rugs, a Pound of Love on sale to knit more slippers for the shelter here, and two skeins of Lion Brand Amazing for hats.
If you don't want those coupons I'll take them! If you are near a Joann's sign up for their flyer - you get a 40% off coupon with each one and sometimes several coupons like this week's. They are having sales continuously.
