I have now knit two pairs of socks from cotton/wool blend sock yarns, first the Danke socks
and now the Danke II socks. I can't decide what I think about knitting them, but they do make good gifts I think. At the moment though I am wishing for wool socks for myself. Perhaps I should extend the same for those I care enough to knit for.
Yarn: ONline Supersocke 100 Cotton in Summer 787
Needle: US Size 1/2.25 mm
Pattern: Basic Sock Pattern by Ann Budd
Pattern Source: The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns
The problem with gift knitting in this season is the danger of it being mistaken for a winter holiday gift. Generally I prefer my handknit gifts to be random gifts. I just feel like they are more appreciated as a happy surprise. Which method of gifting do you prefer as a crafter?
