I have a love hate relationship with handknit socks. I love knitting them but I hate sock yarn cause its so thin. I like a thicker, at least worsted weight yarn, to knit with. I have not been able to find any chunky type wool other than WoolEase but it doesn’t hold up very long for socks. However these socks( ones made with WoolEase Chunky ) are really nice and warm. I got to thinking about my wool sock yarn ( the real stuff ) and how it would be nice if it were thicker.
Do you think I could use 2 strands of the same yarn to make it thicker? I know the socks would be more expensive but maybe more to my liking? I don’t think it would matter if the yarn were self striping as it would blend together into a different pattern( I don’t much like the stripes anyway, as they remind me of the old Wizard of Oz movie evil witch stockings, or Pippi Longstocking stockings ).
