FO- House socks
I needed some more warm house socks so I got some bulky yarn (Patons Shetland Chunky Tweed) in deep red. I should have used a smaller needle so these may not last too long, but I'll wear them anyway. They are soft and warm and unfortunately slippery so I'll have to wear them with scuffs. Boy do my legs look white!

I was surprised, they are actually pretty easy. And they make you feel brilliant the first time you do them!

They look great. Too funny about the hwite legs. Mine are so white too and I only have 2 coices white or pink. I just remind myself God had many choices and he chose to make them white so I just need to be happy with that. LOL
