  3. Nancy, are the needles 2.5mm or 2.75? I usually use the 2.75 and find with 56 CO stitches it fits my foot better. I wear a size 7.5 shoe side. Inquiring minds want to know.

  6. Lovely, and such a thoughtful gift. And of course they are my favorite color, which is probably why they really catch my eye. Happy knitting!

  10. What pretty socks! And thank you for adding a "pro" to one possible job change; I could wear hand-knit socks EVERY day to work. I'd need more!
