Description from Knitty.com:
When getting a pedicure in cold weather, you're faced with a dilemma: bear the chill and go home in flip flops or wrap your feet in plastic, put your shoes back on, and hope for the best. These pedicure socks solve both those problems. Put them on before your polish and your feet will stay nice and warm for your walk or drive home and your polish will stay perfect.
These socks make great gifts because they're quick to knit and require very little yarn. Two skeins will make 2 pairs, or if you want to ditch the stripes, you can make 1 pair with just 1 skein.
