There is something nostalgic about socks. Maybe it’s their coziness or that they make such great gifts for the holidays or the instant comfort they can lend to our feet. Whatever it is, it’s not just us who get warm, fuzzy feelings about hand knit socks. We saw several designers release special patterns over the holiday week. And while the holidays are almost behind us, there still are plenty of cold days ahead that call for socks to keep our toes toasty. Today celebrate happy socks and four newly released patterns for you cast on consideration.
