Does anybody knit socks for somebody with diabetes? If so, what yarns do they find comfortable? I’m thinking about knitting socks for somebody that suffers from a lot of severe swelling in their feet, as well as somebody that spends a lot of time on their feet, so they have to be cool and comfortable (something with cotton as opposed to wool, maybe?)
Are socks a long knit because they use smaller needles and thinner yarn? I’ve never knit them before, and I’d like to, but I don’t want to get discouraged with the project if they take too long.
