|Do note the jammie bottoms...|
When it comes to heating my house, I take a "less is more" attitude. This is witnessed by the multiple layers worn by savvy visitors and family upon entering Inicio de Poca Suerte (Home of Little Lucky - I am feeling bilingual). I can blissfully sail through the chilly atmosphere thanks to a variety of survival gear that I have amassed during the (almost) eight years I've been here. You've met The Geezer Sweater - now meet "Slipper Socks".
I came across these in a catalog priced at a deep discount. Even though I may have purchased them on a whim, I cannot make it through winter mornings without them. They are (supposedly) hand knit, of thick, pure wool, with a double sole - heavy knit bottom with a sewn-on leather sole. Honestly, it could be 32 degrees in the house and my toes would be toasty.
I have put on my long-term, many-paged list "Learn to knit slipper socks", but, in the nonce, I have found and purchased a back-up pair. Way too often I have found some wonderful piece of clothing, pair of shoes, etc., only to find they have been discontinued when I go to replace them. I am taking no chances this time. I figure, by the time I thoroughly wear out both pair of slipper socks, I will have mastered making them. Or so I hope. Either that, or I change plans and move to New Mexico.
