A slight exaggeration… but not much of one.
I can see why people enjoy knitting socks out of 6-ply/sport weight sock yarn. It makes for very satisfying and speedy results!
This is Meilenweit 6-Fach from Lana Grossa. It’s a typical wool and nylon blend for knitting socks.
And here’s a sock. I’m using Wendy D Johnson’s pattern, Sport Weight Toe-Up Socks with Gusset Heel (Ravelry link to free pattern).
