I started my ‘Summer Socks‘ way back mid February… but they were abandoned for other projects. I really don’t know why. These socks were easy to knit –  you can see straight away which row you’re on just by looking at your knitting. blue lace socksThe design is quite stretchy so they’d be ideal gifts for Those Who Appreciate Handknit Socks. The yarn is a wool/cotton blend – perfect for cooler summer days as well as spring and autumn. My only complaint? My ankles seem to be skinnier than standard so that even 60 stitches on 2 mm needles results in some sagging at the top of the heel/ ankle base. I guess there’s always room for improvement!
