Quality Yarn Question
I was wondering if anyone has used Moda-Dea, Sassy Stripes for sock yarn? The reviews at Joann's were very mixed. I'm really enjoying making socks, and it's a great price, but I don't want to use it if it's going to fall apart on me.

Thankies
Holly

I've used it, but not for socks, I made a couple of hats with it & it's held up well; my husband really likes it. I'm sure that it will be fine for socks

I have used it for socks- I knit both of my sons a pair of socks using it. It has held up fine- it's gotten a little fuzzy, but nothing horrible. I liked it, since it was a little bit heavier weight than most other sock yarns.

Sounds great, I think I'll get some from Joann's then.
