This is a quick and cozy pair of socks knit in DK weight superwash wool. My brother thought it would be fun to have a pair of red socks like the cardinals in Rome wear. I think these are probably snazzier and warmer than those guys get, but they have such great hats that they shouldn’t complain about it.
