I present to you a finished pair of socks, knit in self-striping "ONline" sock yarn in the Sierra color-way. Seeing the finished product, there is something about them that is, well, just a little bit hideous (the colors in the picture below are more accurate). Perhaps it is just the season. I think these socks would look lovely under a brooding sky. They seem well suited to walk the misty moors; to scale craggy mountain tops; to inch closer to the fire and pull a blanket close around the shoulders. In accordance with Murphy’s law, or perhaps just my own fickle nature, I completed the socks in just in time for Texas Spring. I think the socks may be destined for Afghanistan.
