These would be my first attempt at socks, which I am using for slippers because they're so thick I don't think they'd fit under my shoes!
But they are warm.

Pay no attention to the swollen ankles. lol!

They are beautiful! I love the yarn -- what is it? Great job -- I can't believe they're your first socks!

Thanks!
Ya know, I have no idea what the yarn is. I think it may be some Lion Brand? My mother had some in her stash, she was always knitting slippers with it.

Very nice! Have you thought about putting them on slipper pads so they last longer?

Thank you MadDeb. Thats a very good idea, about the slipper pads. My mother did that sometimes with the slippers she knit.

Or add duplicate stitch to the bottoms, especially the bottoms of the heels and the balls of the feet. That will make them last longer, too, if you aren't going to wear them with shoes. I never wear mine with shoes,

MADDEB, Where can one find slipper pads? I only heard the tip of using puff paint on the bottoms the other day but this sounds like a great idea. I have had a stroke and am very clumsy these days. I would make slippers all the time if I could wear them without slipping!
