Milk and honey-dipped socks have extra plush worked in lofty Corriedale. Thick and cozy, they are ideal for padding across a warm wooden floor as evening sets in. Swiss dot stitch travels down the foot like December’s first flakes. A classic turned heel adds ease to these simple socks. Or, if you're like me, you'll call them a quiet little pair of slipper socks.
