Like so many parents, my mom and dad are hard to shop for. Fortunately, my mom can usually be pleased with one of my knits. So when I realized that Mother’s Day was approaching back in April I offered to give my mom any of the projects that I was working on at the time or to make something else for her. When I mentioned I had a pair of socks on the needles she made her decision very quickly.
These are the socks she choose, Nutkins made with Dream in Color Smooshy in Beach Fog. As many have said Smooshy is a lovely yarn. The colors are vibrant and the yarn is smooth and springy. It even holds up well after wearing and washing. It’s just perfect for socks in my opinion. The pattern was great too, though I decided to do my regular heel rather than the short row heel called for. I’m a little sad to give them away, but of course my mom deserves them.
