Because of allergies, my sock yarn is quite limited. I like to use Paton's Baby Softee and Paton's Satin Sport. They are two acrylic yarns that are quite soft on my feet and non-irritating for me. They are both #3 weight yarns (I think). I have found that they do hold their shape and they are an easy machine wash and dry.
My Mom likes to use the Paton's sock yarn which is a #2 weight and is part wool and part acrylic. There are other sock yarns that also contain blends of wool, acrylic, and nylon.

one more for the toooo try box. This pattern sounds really easy and must be quick to create.

Seems like you really want me to keep busy!! Oh well, the dust bunnies will have to be forgotten for a while. Let them have fun, too.
Time for some tea, and reading and organizing patterns in order of wanting to work on them. THANKS A BUNCH. gotta love the fact that I cannot get away without some needles in my hand.

well, i'm finally getting better at using the dpn's. I have found the bamboo ones the most helpful. They are not as slick and they are less temp sensitive.
on another note; has anyone used the paton stretch sock yarn? My feet and legs swell several sizes everyday, and I would like to find some decent for myself and others with severe edema.
Any thoughts


I haven't tried it yet, but do have the pattern and the stretch yarn for them. Hummm, I just may have to make some of the tube ones with this yarn. Wanna try together to make some?

Those dust bunnies can guard your knitting! =) I have killer dust bunnies! They kill my allergies! LOL Oh well, life is to short to worry about what your house looks like. God isn't gonna care and who else matters more than Him? =)

Haha, the vacume cleaner sucks mine all up but I know that they escape at night! And you know what they say about bunnies -- they breed prolifically!!!!

Haha, you can also make a pair of these tube socks and use them as dust busters!!! (hint: you dont have to make them quite as long for the socks on your feet!):)

I've used everything from a bulky yarn for tube socks down to sock yarn. I agree that the stretchy yarn is a pain - plus the fact that the socks were just fine when I put them on but stretched too way too much after I wore them just a little while. I really like the the micro fiber yarn for socks as well as sweaters! These are a few of the baby socks I made:

Patons also has a tube sock pattern for free on its website.
Spiral Tube Socks made from Pations Stretch Socks yarn. 2 50g balls on 3.25 mm DPNs. They were a hit with my daughter.

yah they do make a spiral tube sock. I posted the link on page 2 of this topic. I have never made them but they are supposed to be good.
While we are talking about various tube socks, you can adjust any sock pattern and knit them up as tube socks. You just omit the heel part and carry on with the pattern until you need to decrease for the toes! Happy sock knitting everyone!! :D

I have to admit I don't often read past the first page and therefore missed your link. It must be a popular one; I saw it posted a 3rd time somewhere else on this thread. I have to admit it was so easy; that it started to become boring; but I did like the result.

Vgillies, no problems here! There are a lot of KPers who do not read the "in between" posts and it doesnt hurt to mention some things again. I just mentioned it because there are some who do not know how to adjust things in the computer to get a link. I posted the link that they just have to click on to get there. Like I said, no problems!:)

Thanks 5mmdpns- I've knitted socks for years, and never just made a tube. I will try this.
