I was wondering if it's possible to use sock yarn for lace projects. I would like to knit a lace scarf for my sister, and I found a sock yarn in a colourway I know she would love.

Thanks for the help. Smiley

Really, it's possible to use ANY yarn for a lace project.  It's only that some yarns are better suited than others. Cheesy  But yes, sock yarn should work for a lace project.  Just be sure to adjust your needles too.

Certainly you can use it, it's even recommended for first lace projects as laceweight is pretty fiddly if you're not used to working with it. I even use worsted and bulky for lace, you just use bigger needles.
