Take 2: Time to pick up this foray into sock knitting again (and hope the size will fit my mom when I finish).
Pattern requests? Here's a hard one. I HATE making socks. Not cause they're hard (they're not), but because I die of boredom 1/8th of the way up the foot, then I turn the heel and that's fun, and then I die again 1/16th of the way up the cuff. And then you make TWO. Any toe-up socks (or toe down, heck maybe I need to broaden my mind) that won't make me question my sanity?
