My Wild Footie

Since trying to tone down the yellow yarn didn't work so well, I decided to go all out for bright.



I like it.

I also decided to make a slipper sock to wear over other socks in the house, particularly in my knitting room. It's directly over the garage, and the floor gets really cold.

And since I was being wild, I put the "gusset" decreases at the top of the foot. The toe decreases start at the center top and center bottom, move toward the sides and finish in the "regular" position. Why? Just for the hell of it.

Now I need to make the other one.

Love the yarn combination....

You're really living on the edge breaking from the typical decrease locations!

These two yarns are a great improvement over the last pairing. I never thought of wearing 2 socks together for extra warmth.
