What's your favorite sock yarn

I'm still here! I'm working on classes for February and trying to organize the studio with bins that I purchased for my yarn stash.

I did manage to cast on socks and am knitting in the evening. I'm having to use wool - not sure I'll like 100% wool socks but I'm pretty much out of sock yarn! Strange but true. And since there isn't a great selection for speciality yarns in this area (close by), I'll be buying online.

This opens up a whole new question...what's your favorite sock yarn? And why? And where are you finding it? Either post here or email me. Thanks! ;-D

I am here as the enabler >:).

Favorite sock yarns:
Let's start by saying that I love handyed sock yarns, and the list goes as follows:

Scout's Swag--great service, the most outstanding selection and Scout just rocks :)

Yarn Pirate--gorgeous colors

Sunshine Yarns--carries Harry Potter colorways but when she sells them they sell superfast so you have to be on your toes.

Vesper Sock Yarns: Very sought after

Blue Moon--Socks that Rock yarns--everyone loves them, but I haven't had a chance to try them. They sell very fast at the shows and the lines are tremendously long which shows that people love them.

Others lovelies:
Louet Gems--great color selection and lovely yarn. Also, Cookie uses a lot of these yarns for her designs.

Koigu--lovely yarn, very pretty colors.

Cherry Tree Hill.

I could keep going but I think I have given you quite a few up there.

I can't be much help on the sock yarns as I've never knitted socks! I did however get a good laugh from the Garfield comic strip!
