I’m always cold at home so can never have bare feet, these will definitely come in handy for this reason. I love thick and fluffy socks so knitted ones are just perfect. These are the first pair I have ever made and I found them pretty simple. I can now work on making a complex pair… I’ll let you know how that goes.
I also had the idea of making all my Christmas presents this year for my New Years Resolution so I think these would be a great gift idea. You can whip them up in a day and even the simplest patterns can be made to look complicated by using different patterned wool. I you can see I used a brown wool with teal and cream flecks running through it. I think its great way to use up the last of your wool as they only take one ball.
I got my pattern from my monthly knitting magazine called Simply Knitting however you can pick up some great free sock patterns right here on the world wide web. Give it a try!
