Honey, do my feet look big in these???
How 'bout now?
What do you mean wonky legs?
My legs are as straight as they can be! But seriously, I don't think I have ever worn a pair of socks that make my feet look as big as these. When I look down on my feet when wearing these, all I can think is "Bigfoot". Actually, it's more like "Longfoot". The stripes are doing a very good job at an optical illution. The pictures don't do them justice.
Anyway, I've used up my second ball of souvenir yarn I bought in Austria last fall. I've knit these socks toe-up in what's starting to become my default toe up pattern. I've even unvented my way of short row heel myself I think. The sock is "plain vanilla" stockinette stitch, topped with about 2" of twisted rib. I think I have a small crush on twisted rib now... And I'm very happy I managed to squeeze in another pair of socks to Socktopia this month.
The first pair is here
Awwww... Sweet, huh? They're for a little baby boy due to arrive here in this world in August.
Now, it's time for my daily trip around the garden to kill iberia snails. It's an ongoing battle to get rid of this species of slug that does not belong in this country. My new socks are very nice to wear inside my wellies.
Oh, and all hail the inveniton of self-timers on cameras!
