Kroy Socks with decoration

These are made with inexpensive Kroy sock yarn. It's kind of a mousy gray colour with a little bit of decoration done in burgundy. This was such a pain to knit with because it was a loose twist & many times I split the yarn & noticed later. I then had to go back countless times to fix the errors.

The decoration was an experiment. 
They also feature an afterthought heel. To get the right number of rows to use for the heel was experimental; I've only done this heel once before.
I didn't think I would like these, but they feel so good on my feet. They are so soft, cushy & warm.

When summer comes I'll be in my bare feet & sandals, but for now my woolies are wonderful.
