Katia "Jamaica" 100% cotton
HAD to purchase a few skeins of this yarn - just gorgeous - I'm gonna try my hand at some cotton socks now.

Any tips? Anyone knit socks out of cotton?

I'm sure there are people who knit 100% cotton socks, but I wouldn't. They get really stretched out and don't stay up.

you can hold some elastic thread along with the cotton for the ribbing; that should hold them up.
