I’ve learned that I LOVE knitting socks. I’ve also learned that I have very sensitive feet…I swear I can feel every stitch under foot and it’s not nice! So now that I’ve knit 2 pairs of socks that I can’t wear I am trying to figure out what I can do. I was thinking I could just switch to purling the sole area so the smooth side would be inside. Would that look goofy? Would that work? Would it be more prone to wear?
I also suspect that the yarns I have used to date (Trekking & Sockotta) might be a contributing factor due to the 15% nylon, which would make a “harder” yarn, right? I am at the point now where I would be willing to HAND WASH my socks(do I really mean that?) but I am also concerned that if I go for the softest wool yarn, the socks would require a lot of darning early in their lives!
While I could very well continue to knit socks and either give them away or frame them as art, I really would like to don my work on my piggy toes. Any suggestions?
