My beloved younger sister asked me to make socks for her. And being the great sister I am, I acquiesced. I found the pattern by Sue Norad (she’s Canadian, yay!) here. I don’t love the way they turned out, but if I had to make them again, I know how to decrease stiches (thanks Rachel) so they would probably turn out better.
I used purple SuperSaver yarn and a size H hook. She wants them to warm up in during dance, not to wear with shoes or anything.
