Happiness is a new pair of handknitted socks on a cold January evening.  All too often I get asked the question from newbie sock knitters whether or not they can knit a pair of socks on a yarn weight other than fingering/sock weight. the answer is a resounding, "YES!" I knitted this pair of EESTI TRAIL HIKING SOCKS by Nancy Bush from the book FAVORITE SOCKS from Interweave (p. 97) for my son and I used MALABRIGO WORSTED--a soft worsted weight yarn and size US #4 needles. Not only do they take less time (despite the large feet they were made to fit!), but they make wonderful boot socks for outdoor activities or comfy house socks to keep your toes toasty on cold winter nights! Our next INTRO. TO SOCKS CLASS is being offered on SATURDAYS, MARCH 2, 9, & 16th from 12-2 PM and registration is still open. Join the crowd and knit yourself and your loved ones up some happiness at Woolwinders, your neighborhood yarn shop!
