Those are cute, but not for me. I'm more of a boring, "classic" style girl.

I guess I could do that for my granddaughter, though.

My HL had about 7 skeins and no matches. >>>
Figures.

Oh well, I have enough sock yarn to last me a good long time.

Yes, there would be enough for ankle socks like that.

It's a regular, 50 gram skein of sock yarn, so it will work the same as other sock yarns of that size.

Now, if you're a loose knitter, you might need more than one skein.

That's WONDERFUL! I love nice sock yarn that is on the cheaper side. That way you can afford to save up for some beautiful nice yarn too - a nice collection of both! And you dont feel as bad when the less expensive pair wear out - not as big an investment!

The words "enough" and "sock yarn" should not be used in the same sentence!
Thanks for letting us know about this, Shandeh! There are no Hobby Lobbies near me, but I'm sure the product will be coming soon to other big box craft retailers. I've seen the new Lion Sockease online, but the color selections of the Red Heart might be even better...I'll look forward to it showing up in our local stores!

I went to TWO local HL's yesterday and neither one had any RH sock yarn! Bummer. I really wanted to see it (and buy some, of course )

Can't wait to see what you make with it!

I finally bought a couple skeins tonight. My Hobby Lobby still only has one skein of each color. I guess I'll make a pair with different colored toes and heels.
