Ta-da!

I'd take photos outside to show you the true color of these socks, but frankly it's way too cold to go outside without sherpa lined boots.  I could wait until it's warm  to do it, but they're done today and I wanted to show off my Papal Conclave Socks. Besides, who knows when it'll be warm again?  Right this minutes, it's only 28 degrees with a wind chill factor that makes it feel like it's only 19 degrees out there.  The winds today were brutal.  Suffice it to say my woolen goods have had a workout this month.  So has my umbrella and the shovel.  That filthy rodent in Punxsutawney is a liar.  Early spring, my foot!

But I digress, and would rather talk about my red feet.  My two red feet.


On the second sock only, and it is important to point out that there is a second sock in the first place, there is a little flair...courtesy of some smartly placed purl stitches.


I couldn't help myself.  It just seemed right.

Oh, I just love these socks. Just everything: from their redness to the color variations and then the flair. All sorts of good stuff going on here.

I think, the Pa. Rodent's True message was lost in the translation!
The socks look great. Perfect!

Your Papel red socks are awesome. Love the flair.

Your cold temps sounds brutal.

Aw, love the Papal socks! Great timing getting them finished the same week as the election finished.
We've wind chill here too, and it really makes for cold nights, where there's no option but to light a fire and chill!

TaDa for sure. What a creative idea. Simple red socks for our new Francis. Hope he can get some much needed changes done in those red shocks. He might just leave off the shoes. It is still cold down here too. Will it ever end.

Any good recipes for ground hog stew or fried ground hog? At least he would be warm.
