Does anyone know any internet sites where I can buy sock yarn. I am starting to make socks and when I read the patterns some of the recommendations are "Sprinrite Berella Coountry Garden D.K," I searched and was not able to find a site that is selling this yarn. The gauge is 7Sts = 1 inch. Does anyone have an recommended sites?

Go to Woolworks.com, they sell everything and have a great turnaround time. I just bought some great yarn for socks (I like keep a sock in progress in my purse so I can knit while waiting in line) drives people nuts watching me knit with 4 dp needles.

My faves are:
http://www.rosiesyarncellar.com (go to sock boutique) which is the LYS where I work
http://www.eweknitkits.com
http://carodanfarm.com
http://www.fifthstitch.com

These are all places with excellent, personalized service and quick shipping. I've never heard a bad word about any of them, and have ordered from them lots.
Have fun!!!

Carodan Farms and Heartstrings Fiberarts have good sock yarns, and great service.

They're just two of my favorites -- check out the Favorite Online Shops topic if you want information overload!

By the way, I think the Country Garden DK is a regular wool yarn that usually knits at a 5.5 sts to the inch gauge, but they are knitting at a tighter gauge to use for socks. You may find it listed as a Paton's yarn - try http://www.smileysyarn.com (i think that's the link but if it doesn't work, try googling smiley's yarn). Most socknitters I know find that yarn especially designed for socks lasts longer -- most sock yarns add nylon to the wool to make it more durable.
