I added the Grecian key pattern on the toe to make things interesting
Turning  the heel is the most challenging part of the project and usually requires a phone call to mom for help

Knit wool socks and hat. So far I've limited my knitting skills to these two essential winter gear

I was about 8 years old when I knit my first piece of essential winter gear - a wool scarf a few inches wide and as long as my patience would allow. Over the years I progressed to circular needles and knit beanie caps (photo above), and finally in my teenage years mastered the four-needle knit sock.

My mom wrote the patterns and sold them to designer Ann Norling in the 1980s. But their utilitarian design keeps them current. The yarn is Brown Sheep, which is washable and anti-itchy.
