Little blue socks.

Completed socks
Another completed project! These are some hand knitted socks that I have made from a bag of pure wool found in a local charity shop. The soles have a double thickness of thread though I didn't bother weaving in all the ends. These are really comfortable and I love them.

When they were first completed I was worried that they would be too big. However a quick wash and felt soon shrank them back to size - and also dealt with those loose ends.  As you can see in the photo I've not bothered blocking them, life's too short when they're only going to end up on my feet.
