I’m going to be casting on my very first pair of socks soon and i’m looking for a nice yarn to buy. The pattern i’m using calls for a worsted weight yarn knit on size 5 needles. I thought that would be nice for my first pair and a little easier than using a fingering or something. ANYWAY… i’m looking for a yarn that is washable, somewhat elastic but won’t stretch out too much and striping… oh and it should be comfy and soft too. Does anyone know where i can find such a yarn? what brands make this?
