These socks are for my Mom, a size 9 to my size 6.5. Now I need to decide if I should give them to her for Mother’s Day or save them for Christmas. They’re 75% wool, so she probably wouldn’t (shouldn’t!) wear them until fall, and I hate to give gifts that folks can’t use immediately. But, I’m sure she’d love to have them now. What do you think?
