knitting socks with different yarns
Hello-

I love to knit socks and I'm wondering if I can use different weight yarns, such as sport, DK, etc.?

Sure, you can use any weight you want. There are lots of patterns for various weights of socks if you need them. I do recommend using a yarn with nylon if you want them to last.

Thank you! DUH! I didn't even think that there might be sock patterns written for various yarn weights.
