light as a feather and sweet as candy… is there anything that says “christmas” quite like images of sugar plum fairies dancing around your head?

enjoy these sweet lacy socks, designed to play with those complementary skeins of sock yarn in your stash. they go slightly further up your leg to keep you a little warmer on cold winter floorboards and drafty homes as doors open and close to let family and friends in for holiday celebrations. you won’t need to worry about switching out your boots for indoor shoes with these darlings to show off, and padding around on sock feet makes it easier to sneak up on your own nutcracker or clara too. the perfect all-purpose holiday knit!
