Renee's socks. Renee, a distant cousin, is a dear sweet friend, not just a relative. I'm making her these socks because she was very sweet to me for my birthday, and because she's going through hard times. She lives in Texas, so these are cotton/wool socks. She has large-ish feet, so I bought 3 balls & it should be plenty. I'm going to make the legs maybe 6" - long enough to be comfortable, but not really hot in the heat, either.
