I like knitting patterned socks for myself to match different outfits. Knitting socks is also great for using up a ball or two of yarn hanging around. When I want to try a special yarn, I knit comfy socks to try it out and see how it works up in one of my favorite sock knitting patterns. Patterned socks are a fun way to combine yarns. I also like to learn new stitches by knitting up a nice pair of socks.

Wondering what yarn to use for knitting socks? Well, there are yarns specifically made for knitting socks. They will say so right on the label. Great first choice for knitting socks! Otherwise, I would choose a wool or wool blend yarn for knitting socks. Wool or wool blend yarns are breathable and durable for knitting socks. Cotton yarns can work for lightweight knitted socks, but may not be as durable. Synthetic yarns or "fun" yarns can be nice for trim around the ribbing or perhaps if you're knitting a sock with two yarns. That's what I love about knitting socks - so many choices!
