A Question about socks and sock yarn.
I am thinking about knitting my first pair of "real socks". I've knitted socks using worsted weight yarns using 2 needles, but they're only suitable for house wear as they aren't comfortable in a shoe. My question is this. Sock weight yarn is designated as a "size 1" on the label, but when I went and bought some Red Hart TLC baby, it has a weight of 3 but the yarn it's self is the same diameter as the sock yarn, and is 64% acrylic and 42% nylon. Is there any reason I can't use this yarn to knit up some nice socks?
