Socks are so fun to knit, and if you’ve never tried them before, these striped socks from Mellywood’s Mansion are a good place to start.
They call for 8 ply yarn (she’s in Australia), which is usually called a light weight or DK yarn in the states and elsewhere the ply system isn’t used.
They use three colors, but of course you could knit them solid as well, or use up odd balls from your stash for super colorful socks.
Do you knit socks? I’d love to hear about your favorite patterns!
