Fortunately, my HB does have more than one skein of each color in the RH sock yarn, but I haven't bought any yet. They also just got in the Lion Brand sock yarn and Paton's Kroy, but there is only one skein of each color for these brands.

I've never tried socks before, but I think I will now!

I think I must be stupid to post this...... But I'm broke and maybe if it sells out fast enough they will restock! LOL

I would compare it to Patons Kroy or another similar brand. It's not really soft....but it doesn't feel bad either. It reminds me of the feel of the first real sock yarn I used - "Forever Jacquard" by Lane Cervinia Tollegno.

I really like to make socks with the natural shade of yarn, but that "Watercolor Stripes" is a nice color combination, isn't it?

I just finished my first sock (other than the baby sock I did to figure it out) with this yarn in the Watercolor. When I finish the second one already a 1/3 done I will post some picture on What'cha Knitting. I liked the yarn and it knitted well. I have some of the Lion sock ease to try as well. I have some nicer sock yarn that I got but I wanted to knit a couple of pair before I use it.
