The socks that I knit for our family are worn. I’m not so much the process knitter, and much more focused on the product. If I am going to spend a long time knitting a garment, I want it to have a long, useful life.
These socks have been a disappointment. They were finished in January 2010, and this is only their second winter. Apart from the massive hole in the right heel, there are heaps of pills, and if you look closely at the left heel, it is extremely thin, and a wear away from disintegrating.
Needles: Addi fixed 80cm 2.5mm.
