i have decided that i want to knit my son some socks for the winter.
he's a european shoe size 28. does anyone know an easy pattern to learn on please?
the idea for the socks is so that he can wear them over the top of his veryday cotton socks over his trouser legs (i have horses so the idea is to keep in his legs warmer when he's outside so much).
i have a pattern that i started to follow to make myself some socks last year, i was absolutly fine with the dpn's, i haven't tried turning the heal's yet, but i am sure with lots of practise i will get it, she says hehe.
also, i was looking at sock yarn online, it said it was 100% wool, does that mean any heavier weight wool would be fine? reason asking is because i have about 1000 grams of wool sitting theer doing nothing, its not soft enough to use as a jumper or anything close to any part of the skin.
any ideas greatfully recieved
