I was just given some yarn today, by my yarn angel Smiley. Among it was some Wool Ease. I've never used it before, but I'm in love with the coloring (Denim Twist). I was wondering whether that yarn would be good to use for socks?Huh? I realize they'd be a bit chunkier than your average socks made with sockyarn, and I know they won't felt due to it mainly being acrylic. I just want regular type socks.

Thanks

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

Is it wool ease worsted, or chunky, or thick and quick?  There actually IS a pattern on the Lion Brand website for Wool-Ease T&Q.

If it's the worsted, than any sock pattern for worsted weight yarn (and there are a number) would work beautifully, and I think it would make lovely socks.

I hear it makes good house socks.

Here's a beginner pattern for top down socks in worsted weight yarn:

And the link at the top (Socks 101) takes you to a great tutorial with clear pictures of the steps and what not. That tutorial is what finally made it all 'click' for me. Smiley

I just found a free pattern for Wool-Ease socks the other day. I haven't given it a try yet, but I have two skeins left over from a baby sweater so I will probably try it eventually. Here it is:

This was the pattern I used for my first socks. It calls for Wool Ease.
