Malabrigo socks
Did someone here knit some socks in Malabrigo? I have a skein - think it would easily have enough yarn - but am unsure as to needle size. I am thinking maybe 4's or 5's?????

It was EarthChic, they are so pretty!

There is a time to be born and a time to die. A time to laugh and a time to cry, but there never seems to be enough time to knit.-Anon. (or to visit KH!)

I know! Now I'm thinking that maybe if I use Malabrigo, I'll actually be able to knit a pair of socks, just as I won't want to give up on that yarn!
Is this a cat toy? No, it's a sock disguised as a ball of yarn.

The suggested needle size for mmm....Malabrigo is an 8 I believe, and that gives a fairly stretchy fabric. I probably wouldn't go much smaller than a 6 for socks, but I lack much sock experience. Earthchick, what needle size did you use??
