Sock Knitting - A Love/Hate Relationship

Sock Knitting - A Love/Hate Relationship

Over the years, I have made several socks using different heels, toes and techniques.  They are fabulously fun and fast to knit and I love being able to use all my beautiful fingering weight yarn from my stash.  I have found my heel, toe, my preferred needles and method.   There is just on big problem . . . . . . . . . . .  . I hate how they feel on the bottom of my feet.
