I am addicted to fingering weight yarn...for most everything...I don't think I have used worsted for anything in a long while....

DK/Sport would be my next fave...but fingering weight lets me knit tiny bears too... for every pair of socks I have made...there is a matching bear!

I like how fast sport weights work up - but they just dont feel as comfortable to me in the shoes. For a lounging sort of sock - yes - but for a sock to wear with shoes (there's a concept!) I like the fingering weight, for sure! And those take long enough - I cant even imagine lace weight - but bet they are beautiful!
