I want to get back into knitting socks. All the ones I have ever done (many many ones… I never counted) had the heel cap. Now I have seen a lot of sock discussion with heels done in short rows.
I am now looking for a nice pattern to try it on.
I want to make warm socks (those that you wear around the house) so it shall be some medium to thicker yarn and not the classical thin sock yarn. The yarnbrand does not matter since I have to replace it with European yarn anyways.
Pretty much: I want to do the knitting to learn something and to have warm feet while knitting over the winter.
If it is a plain sock: the better, since then I can add in patterns or stripes as I go (cables, structures… mostly around the ankle of course)
I am very sensitive to knobs, knots and folds around my feet especially if I wear socks like this in boots or hiking shoes every once in while. That’s why selfknit socks rule, in my eyes: you are responsible for not making them uncomfortable.
