Wool socks just make you feel better, especially if they are hand knit! But, even if you don't have time to knit socks, you can stitch up a few quick as a wink.
I have a basket for our non-superwash socks in the laundry room. I pile them in there until I'm ready to hand wash a batch of them. I think this new little piece will make a great label for the front of the basket.
And the little one would make a great tree ornament, don't you think?

The large sample was stitched on some unknown linen (probably about 24 count). The threads I used are : Dungarees, Buckeye Scarlet, Shutter Green, Oatmeal and Maple Syrup, all by Gentle Art Sampler Threads.
And the small was on Lakeside Linen 32 count Pearled Barley with Buckeye Scarlet & Banker's Grey threads. But pick your favorite colors and stitch one up!
