    I was just thinking this past weekend that I needed a pattern for worsted weight socks for my teenage daughter. She insists on wearing “fashionable” boots, and has as a result, taken over my hiking socks in an attempt to keep her feet warm. She would love these.

      I’m so glad! I desperately needed some socks this winter, and just didn’t have the time to knit a few pair in fingering weight.
