9/365 Not your standard socks

I've heard that once you start wearing hand-knit socks, you never go back to those you buy at the store. I don't know about that, but I do know that nothing compares to my hand-knit wool slippers.

The turquoise and plum yarn in this photo, which is a wool/nylon blend (as you can see from the label) is sock yarn. It's thinner and soft, as you would expect from a pair of socks.

I chose this yarn for Mom as a Christmas gift, partly due to the luscious color, and partly because I want to see the crazy socks that come out of this crazy yarn.

They'll definitely be more exciting than a standard white sock!
