my feet ache when they get cold. even inside in winter when it is warm inside.

I want to start making some socks for myself (to start). What kind of yarn would be best? warm and dry and very soft.

also: are toe up socks easier than regular? I am a new knitter.

thanks so much!

i think it's wonderful that sock knitting = more bags for your yarn. i, personally, am a sucker for bags (some women collect shoes, i collect bags and yarn/fiber) especially cute ones that fit a skein of yarn :)

I know, right?

I love that these are upcycled sweaters.  What a great idea!  

LOL!  A challenge, huh?  Well I wasn't actually challenging you, but... ... ... :o) 

Cute little bags are always a good thing.   Here is my not so very cute little bag, and the left over yarn.  Measures 7X6.  It was a tad tight when I first had the yarn in the bag, but as you can see, it held up pretty well.  I never put the socks in the plastic bag, that would have been too much :o)  But I greatly appreciated not having the yarn roll all over the place, get dirty, or more importantly - get twisted around. 

Good luck.  I think you'll enjoy TAAT!
