The weather outside is frightful, and the socks are so delightful.....don't know the rest of the words or I'd go on. The temperature here this morning was -18. The high so far is -6. That's a high????? Tonight's low is suppose to be -23. I can hardly wait!

The car was not the least bit interested in starting this morning, plugged in or not, so I got to have a holiday from work. That means free knitting day! Or in this case crocheting. I love knitting socks, and saw a book about crocheted socks. I was going to buy it and then I thought why not just wing it. How hard can it be to make a tube, leave a space, make another tube, fill in the heel space, and viola! a sock. This is what I came up with. They fit perfectly and I love the color. The yarn was from a hat and scarf set I picked up at a thrift store for $1.99. And it's wool to boot!! What more can you ask? There is lots of it left so I can KNIT a pair of socks from it too.

The second sock is calling my name, so I better get at it.

These socks are adorable and I love the color. The only thing I've ever crocheted were afghans, so I'm amazed at your creativity.

Wear them in good health.
