Red Twizzle Socks for AL



The other images I took are so bright they may injure someone. The true color of the socks is more berry and more dazzle.
Al will have them for many cold days 9 months out of our Chicago weather year.
I love this silk and merino yarn from Mountain Colors .

I accidentally bought 2 % milk this week . When I tasted it, it was so good compared to skim! What a treat. Cheap thrills continue here at Irisheyes!

What's your cheap thrill this week?
I talk more in the comments!

I love those socks!! I was hoping they are as red as they show up in the photo. Al is going to have warm, pretty tootsies.

2% milk is a guilty pleasure but I can't drink whole milk anymore after years of skim. It's like drinking melted cheese.

Pretty socks

Tom was making choc chip cookies the other night from our small batch baking book and was out of brown sugar so he added more white sugar and some dried cranberries, they were really really good! Cheap thrill!!

Nice! I'm really liking sparkly yarns right now.

The Knight brought home fried chicken last night. I don't normally care much for "yardbird" but that was a treat!

Waking up in my own bed after a two-week trip felt pretty good. Not such a "cheap" thrill, however, if you count the cost of travel these days!!

What bright socks! That can be so fun when the weather is dreary... good job!

Cool yarn. Never heard of this one before.

Great socks! Yes - I grew up on skim milk, but switched to 2% as an adult. Tastes great.
