These socks are very wise.
Firstly, we are forecast snow this weekend, so warm hand knitted socks are a very wise choice. Secondly, because the pattern comes from Wise Hilda Knits.
Wise Hilda is very wise indeed, as she knows how to avoid holes when picking up gusset stitches after turning the heel. A very handy tip. The pattern is quite easy (K3, P1), so a great knit for when watching TV or when travelling about. The yarn is Drops Fabel, that I won from a give-away from A Playful day podcast. All this wise knitting makes me wonder if my guinea pigs would like a jumper? Somehow I suspect that it would not be very wise at all!
