I love a thick sock!

I whipped these up this week. I've been stuck inside because of back to back to back snow and ice storms hitting us. Lots of knitting time. The perfect time for a nice thick pair of new socks don't you think?

Pattern: Woven Stitch, Sensational Knitted Socks
Yarn: Artyarns Supermerino 6, a Christmas gift from Hub, 1.35 skeins
Needles: US 2, 2.5
Notes: I purposefully knit these fairly tight. I wanted thick and squishy!

My feet are finally warm this week! Now Hub will know I appreciate the gift and maybe it'll encourage him! Last year he didn't do so well... ;)

They do indeed look very nice and squishy! I love the way the colors behaved, too.

We had an ice storm here last night. Sadly, I could not stay home and knit. :-(

Pretty indeed! I love my thicker socks for bumming around the house.
