These will be really nice when you get them done and stretchy enough that even though they seem small they'll fit your MIL. I think my worsted weight socks took about that many stitches but it's been a while and I didn't keep notes.

I think I'll stick with toe-up no swatch Lifestyle socks. Those don't look easy peasy to me. You're much braver than I!
Well As I am working on it, it is looking a bit bigger. I think just the ankle looks really small.

I can't wait to finish them now. I just got some more yarn in the mail to make more socks
