So, Sister loves her birthday socks. She has been dropping not so subtle hints for quite a few months now, and her birthday seemed to be the appropriate time to make a pair for her. The problem has been that she's picky. Wool it too scratchy, I'm allergic and so on. So I had to choose the yarn with great care. These are 70% fine merino, 20% cashmere and 10% nylon. They are incredibly soft. I picked a more conservative yarn for this first pair. Next time around I'll dig out the neon and really have some fun.
