So I am making a pair of wool socks, an early birthday gift, for my dad. I have already made wool socks for my brother, sister and mother. My dads birthday falls in July and I know that I never think of wool socks in the summer, so I checked it out. I googled it. Yup, I googled “wool socks in summer” or something like that. Right away expensive wool socks pop up, exhorting the superiority of wool verses cotton socks. Because the wool wicks away moisture, runners or athletes feet remain comfortable. I think wool socks will become a regular gift from me. Of course for the summer months I am going to stick with smaller needles and finer yarn so the socks will be thinner socks.
