OMG, Julie, those socks. WOW! I am drooling.....
I have had this thing for worsted weight socks, thinking they would have a thick, cushiony feel. Well, that, and the fact that when I first started knitting socks in February, I was afraid they would take a very long time on tiny needles and I would be discouraged.
This summer, I did the Simply Lovely Lace Socks from IK Spring 2006 and I fell in love with them. They were lace socks done with fingering weight yarn on size 0 needles. I was surprised at how much I loved working with those teeny little things.
Right now I'm on another pair of worsted weight, but I am definitely planning to use more teeny needles soon.
