Handwork has become popular among the younger set once again. After scarves, socks may be the easiest garments to create with your needles, and the colors and textures are both gorgeous and endless. Try these Ribby Socks as a first knitting venture, or how about these funky “unshaven” slipper socks complete with toenails as a beginning crochet project? A thick pair of men’s knit socks makes a great gift for those living in cold climates, and flip-flop socks make a great gift for teens. Knitted socks for baby will keep those little toes warm all winter long. Ask Granny would love you to leave some of your ideas and knitting patterns in the comment box!
