More Socks!

This afternoon I finished this pair of red slipper socks. These babies are a triple qualifier: they should earn me a brownie point on the Sock-A-Month Knit-Along (yes, they have heel turns!), plus their red color qualifies them for Lolly's Project Spectrum AND the Red Hot Sizzlin Socks Knit-Along. You'd think with all that credit they would have taken more than three easy days of knitting, huh! The pattern is Cozy Slipper Socks on size 8 double pointed needles, and I substituted Red Heart Light and Lofty in Red Grape Multi because I liked the colors in it.

And thanks for the advise on not blocking the machine washable socks! I'll block the hand-wash ones, but it's straight from the dryer to the drawer for the ones made of superwash wool.

Triple credit is always good. In red makes it better. Great job!
