Cross Stitch Free Pattern : Winter Wool Socks

I whipped up a new little cross stitch over Thanksgiving weekend :

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!
