If you have hardwood floors in your house, like me, then you too are probably dreading the oncoming cold weather. The idea of putting my feet on the chilly floor each morning makes me stay in bed even longer. This year, I’ve decided to solve that problem by knitting up some cozy socks to keep by the nightstand, so I can cover my feet before they even hit the floor.
Do cold feet get you down in the fall and winter? Start knitting one of these cozy pairs of socks now to avoid a chill.

Knitting a cozy pair of socks doesn’t mean skipping out on an elegant design. These lace socks feature a leaf lace pattern, plus a fishnet design on the back. They even have a little tie on the back that peeks out when worn with your favorite flats.

Spectral Dispersion Socks
I dare you to find a pair of socks more fun than these! I was originally drawn to all the colors, but then I took a closer look at that slip-stitch design. Wow! These look like they’re fun to knit — and fun to wear.

If your socks had a pocket, what would you put in there? Now’s the time to find out. Use the recommended Lion Brand Fisherman’s Wool yarn, available right here on Bluprint, and you’ll only need half a skein to make a pair — meaning you can make one more pair for a friend!

I love sock yarn that does all the striping for you. Pair that with a simple rib and cable pattern and you’ve got yourself a sock knitting pattern that’s much easier than it looks. This pair is named for Eirene, the goddess of peace and springtime, but that doesn’t mean you need to limit yourself to wearing these in the spring.

At first I was drawn to these socks because of the color, but then I read that they can be customized to fit a wider foot. My size 10 feet salute you, meriffic, for designing socks with a larger foot in mind!
Do you prefer to knit your socks toe-up or cuff-down?
