The woman who told me it was being discontinued was in Canada, so I don't think it's just the US that aren't getting it anymore.

What a bummer! I just knitted those peek-a-boo socks for a friend in the bright blue Sox and lOVED IT!! I had planned on ordering a bunch more. :(

I will say that I had a hard time finding the blue I wanted online. I ended up getting it at Herrschners.

This may be OT (sorry!) but if I want to order some of the Sox yarn from the store knitqueen was kind enough to link us up with for my first pair of socks, around how much should i get? In other words, around how much yarn does it usually take for one regular/beginner pair of socks?

It takes 2 balls of yarn to make an adults pair of socks, and 1 ball to make a pair for a child.

Bernat Sock Yarn
I bought it at Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's, Michael's, Walmart and if you have one of those Meier's there too. It's a wonderful yarn, reasonably priced out there at the discount market. Also Hobby Lobby has their own brand that is the same yarn but so far only at a few stores. Good Luck!

1 ball will also make a pair of ladies ankle socks. That's what I'm working on right now for my niece.
