My sister-in-law and my niece both requested socks for Christmas 2008.
I was happy to indulge them!
SIL wanted heavy socks for relaxing around the house. One skein of Encore worsted, size 7 needles, plain vanilla pattern, shoe size 10. I had a tiny ball of Encore left, so used just under 200 yards.
These were for my niece, finished while in the car and at their house.
She wanted a bright color: I had some Opal 4 ply in my stash; size 1.5 needles, size 7 shoe.
They were well received!
