Jean’s New Socks


Plain socks worked toe up in Opal Hundertwasser. I really like knitting socks this way: they look just like traditional socks but there are virtually no holes anywhere such as are often found in top down socks. And there’s no danger of running out of yarn, of course,

There were a couple of false starts for these: my father in law’s health problems cause his feet to swell and I was afraid to make them too small. So, the first try was too big. Let’s hope these fit, because he’s a man who loves his hand knit socks to bits and he hasn’t had a new pair in quite a while.
