Why I love sportweight sock yarn


This is two days of knitting (Tuesday and Thursday - Wednesday I didn't get to it). I've turned the heel on both socks. It may look familiar, unfortunately.
This time there are no pooling issues, and hopefully will be no fit issues (if there is one it'll be bagginess). I'm using beaded rib, which isn't my favorite for this yarn but if it means I don't get crazy pooling I'll deal. I'm hoping to have an FO post up by Saturday!

Go girl! Don't let that darn yarn beat you! (besides it's too pretty to bin!)

I luv sportweight yarn, too! Several of my first socks were sportweight. I think I would have given up if I'd tried using fingering weight yarn to learn how to knit socks!

Looking forward to seeing the finished pair.
