question about socks??
All the socks I've made so far for the a4A projects have been of knitted worsted weight, thick and warm, but rather "stiff" in texture compared to the ordinary knitted sock made with small needles and sock-weight yarn. Is it practical to make the lighter-weight socks for Afghanistan? Is it better to have thick and warm, especially since shoes get removed indoors? Any opinions or suggestions? I'm eager to get started, especially with two days' travel time to knit in over the holidays!
