I had asked the same ?'s as in my other post on a knitting list
one person responded and said that 6 - 6.5spi on sport weight yarn wasn't a tight enough knit fabric in her opinion for socks.
so that got me to wondering.
I think from what I remember most sock patterns that use sock weight yarn get approx 7-8spi
so is there an average spi for sport weight and worsted weight for socks that you think gives a good fabric for socks - KWIM - dense enough but not too tight but not too lose.
This is my first pair so I don't know what "just right" is yet.
so I guess my ?'s are
what is the average spi for sock, sport, and worsted weight socks for a good drape (not sure what you call it)
oh and one more - are socks pretty much always divided in half with half the stitches being for the heel flap and half for the top of the foot?
