Opal has released their latest collection, For Ladies and Gentlemen. The collection includes four bright colors and four more subdued colors. Each of them a great knit and perfect for gifts as they can be machine washed and dried. What I like about this collection is that there are four options for someone like my husband who doesn't wear bright colors. But I would LOVE IT if he would. I'm so envious of the knitters who come in and purchase bright colors for people in their lives. For husbands who love to wear color, for wives who want orange socks, for grandkids who love bright fluorescent stripes.
Do you have more people in your life that like subdued socks or bright ones? Since two of the people closest to me are little ones whose feet grow very fast, I don't knit socks for them. But I"m sure they'd prefer bright ones. Since I mostly knit socks for myself, I knit pretty much whatever I want. But I do knit for Joe and others as well... but I'll admit I choose who I'm knitting for based on what I want to knit at that time. If I see a Trekking XXL color that I want to knit up, I choose a person in my life that I think would like them for a gift.
