Whether or not you've knit socks before, these Sweet Knit Slipper Socks are a cinch to accomplish. If you love the feeling of toasty toes on cold winter days, but can't stand the dragging and bulkiness of standard slippers, slipper socks are what you're looking for. Since they're more form-fitting than your standard knit slippers pattern, they look and feel no different from socks and won't restrict your movement. It's easy to throw shoes on over these knit slippers if you need to run out for any reason, which is great for the gal-on-the-go.
