Worsted Weight Socks
I just cast on some worsted weight socks with some nice, soft yarn from Hobby Lobby. Baby Bee Sweet Delight Twist in the color "Teddy Bear".

I'm using this pattern: http://www.sweaterscapes.com/sockinst.htm

I have used Yarn Bee and used the "light fleece" and was very pleased. It was soft and fluffy and fun to knit. but i did it in a chunky weight (my favorite) weight yarn.
I like yarn bee yarns. I only wish that had more natural fibers!!

Those will be very nice!. I'll have to remember to fondle the "Sweet Delight" next time I'm in Hobby Lobby!

I think the softest Baby Bee is the Sweet Delight Baby in yellow. The color is called "sunkisses". For some reason, some colors feel softer than others.

Sandy, I love reading your threads just so I can say "Shandeh", and hear Sean Connery's sexy voice in my head.

I love the look of that yarn. Those socks are already looking quite comfy! We have a grocery store about to shut down in our smallish town of 25,000. I've been hearing a rumor all over town that a Hobby Lobby is coming in there.

All we have now is a very limited craft department in our Super Wal-Mart. Oh, I hope, I hope, I hope the rumor is true!
