Felted house socks for Mom

This pair of socks knit up really quick! I cast on 40 stitches with US sz 11 needles and knit a basic sock. You decrease for the toe 'after' you achieve the length of your foot [or my mom's, in this case].
I used the Reynold's Lopi I had left over from my son's Icelandic Sweater.
Mom said they are the right height and loves them!

They are beautiful, and I can't believe you popped them out that fast! I crochet socks, and it takes me two weeks on the train!

Knitting, crocheting and tatting ... I love your blog. I'm just starting to knit, so very slow and have never tatted but would love to learn. Certainly will be back. Your work is beautiful.
