I am planning on making my mom some socks for Mother's Day.<br><br>
I've got one about half done and am not sure she will like it. I didn't realize that this yarn striped like this.<br><br>
I like them and would wear them, I'm just not sure if she would.<br><br>

My rule with hand-knit stuff is that I must know that the recipient will LOVE it. If you're not sure, keep them for yourself & make/give her something else.

I have no idea about your mom, but I like the socks and I think it's awesome that you can do that! Someday I'd like to learn how to knit.

Don't you know that Mama's always love a handmade gift. Doesn't matter if it fits, if she likes the<br>
colors, if she ever wanted one....if it's hand made, it's precious. She will love them. I'm jealous.

Wow those are really beautiful socks - I would guess that any mom would be touched by such a beautiful homemade gift from her daughter!

ooo they are spring colors! Even if the color isn't exactly to her taste, she'll still love them because you knit them for her and at the very least she can wear them when she's lounging around the house.. Hand knit socks feel wonderful!

I think they're neat but I personally don't like to wear striped socks. Yeah, I'm weird. LOL<br><br>
Also, you have nice feet!

Have you ever seen your mom wearing patterned socks? I think I have to agree with the idea of giving them to her only if you <i>know</i> she'll love them. Clothing is a difficult thing to choose for someone else, IMO.
