These are my first socks for the KAL, and my second pair of socks ever. I used Cider Moon's Glacier weight yarn in Banana Cabana.
I had so much fun knitting these, and my kids love them so much, that they promptly put in orders for pairs.
These could be very elegant in a solid color sock yarn. I'm a firm believer in knitted socks being fun, though! At least for now.
