When someone knit-worthy requests something, it only makes sense to oblige. That was the case with these socks – Heather’s mother wanted a cozy yet hardy basic pair of DK-weight socks. The Towanda socks are the result. They’re even named after the town where her mother grew up. Quick to knit – you’ll want to knit a pair for everyone you know (including yourself).
