It seems to me as though I’ve had three pairs of socks on the needles for a very long time. At last this pair have emerged: 50/50 silk and wool from Kathys Fibres, a dyer local to me, in Forest colourway. The sock is just the plain ribbed one that lives in my mind, but I’m hoping they’ll be warm and comfy for a fellow knitter and dear friend who is facing a tough time. No one has ever knit her socks before, though we’ve compared notes on lots of pairs she has knit for other people. It’s about time.
