Well, we all know one thing Icelanders have to keep them warm, right? Lopi!
about $40. I might consider such a purchase were they not cheap ugly polyester fleece! Seriously, the Queen of England endorses these boots and I highly doubt she would slide her royal tootsies into such and inferior fabric!
How did showing you my socks turn into a rant about the Queen? To get back on track, I knit these Lopi socks for the sole (!) purpose of wearing between my regular socks and my wellingtons. It's like English/Icelandic fusion!
Pattern: Made it up (I might write a half-arsed one size pattern in the future)
Yarn: 2 skeins of Lopi (not sure of the color # as I picked this yarn up at a craft swap)
Well, I guess the singular purpose isn't entirely true. Given the weather I've hardly taken them off. Turns our they're also great staying-indoors-and-playing Nintendo socks!
