I just finished a pair of socks for my friend Lois. They were made with Regia 75% superwash wool, 25% nylon on size 1 needles. The leg part is longer than usual because Lois wanted it to go under her leg brace. I go to a lot of public hearings, city council meetings, planning and zoning commission meetings, and other public involvement events, and of course, I knit all through them. Lois says my socks are power socks because they have lots of liberal social activism knit into their very beings - a nice thought. I call them Pippi socks because they are very stripey and energetic.
