I have to put in a vote for Opal too, I just love their patterning. I also like hand dyed sock's really fun to knit and be surprised as you go.

LOL ... I agree, Rebecca. Picking a favorite is very tough. I've only used 4 different kinds so far and I actually liked them all. I have a whole drawer full of different kinds to try. It's fun when it's time to start a new pair and I get to choose which yarn to try.

I agree. I don't have a fave either... but I love Art Yarns Ultramerino, Lorna's Laces, and I think I may be getting my hands on some Sweet Georgia Yarn soon. She has such pretty colorways too. I think anything hand painted is my fave. Oh, I also like Fleece Artist sock yarn.

Kellyk, I just finished a pair of socks using Cherry Tree Hill yarn. It was beautiful. was. I forgot that it was a hand wash yarn, and washed it will my other hand knit socks in the washer in cold water. :crying: Big mistake. The yarn faded so much, and I had only worn them one time! I will buy this yarn again, but next time, I will remember to hand wash those socks!!

I love Lorna's Laces Shepherd's sock yarn. It's great to knit with. Trekking knits up really nice.
