Slouchy Socks…like we used to wear in the 80's

These remind me of the slouchy socks I used to wear in the 80’s. They slouch nicely and the bottom incorporates a reverse stockinette so you are walking on the smooth side making it even more comfy!
I did adjust the needle size a little since I thought the foot was too large in circumference.
To make them a little more special, my 17 year old son helped me by knitting the little bags in the matching yarn. We rolled the socks and put them in the bags to make a really special sock gift! Who knew I’d be trading knitting tips with my son??? He is a great knitter, fast and very neat consistent stitches. The nice part is it used the left over yarn. Since my family knits as well, I sent the tiny amount of leftover yarn in the bags for possible repair work in the future.
