Knitting as housework

We live in a cold, drafty old house and conventional wisdom says you loose a lot of body heat through your feet. Warm socks, therefore, are a necessity of life in Saw-whet Manor. I'd say they are as important as doing dishes or scraping paint. So spending a whole evening knitting is the same as doing lots of housework. Right??

This is my first pair of socks made from a $2 ball of wool yarn from a big box craft store:

More to come!


  1. Joanna- those came out great!! Those are your first pair of socks!? You are a natural at knitting! Nice job

  2. They look great! I heart red.
    Don't forget hats too!

  3. And fingerless gloves so at least your hands are warm while your fingers are available.
