My design ideas and advice: These socks are perfect for keeping your toes toasty warm on those chilly winter nights in the run up to Christmas. Hand knitted socks are a luxurious comfort, especially if knitted with love. It is perfectly easy to add a loop and hang your socks over the fireplace on Christmas Eve, all ready for Father Christmas to fill with wonderful gifts!
