Keep Your Feet Toasty

Kollage Feed Your Creativity February

The warm weather is quickly leaving us which means no more bare feet and flip flops. One of the best things about the colder weather is the coziness of having nice, warm, toasty feet. What better way to do this than with great socks and slippers? Even better yet is if these slippers and socks were handmade. Sock knitting kits are a fun way to make sure that your feet are always toasty warm.
