These Christmas socks are sure to get you in a festive mood! Knit from the top-down these socks featuring a forest of fir trees in a snowy field will keep your feet warm whilst out in the cold. I decided to use a speckled yarn as the main color, the white with the bright specks of color makes me think of Christmas lights in the snow!
