Slip Jig Socks

Have you ever knit a pair of socks with mediumweight yarn? With 56 stitches around on size 2.75 mm dpn's these socks are just flying off the needles!

I knit this first sock in two nights, I've cast on for the second... should have it done by the end of the week! This yarn (BMFA STR mediumweight) knits up into a nice, thick sock. Perfect for wearing around the house on chilly winter weekends. I used to be slightly skeptical of thicker sock yarns, I didn't think that they would actually make very good socks, but I have been very pleasantly proven wrong!
