Speaking of the cable pattern, I came up with a fine innovation (cop out). (BTW--how do you cross out a word on the blog in order to put in the euphemism & still show the original, crossed-out word?) I had so much trouble keeping track of when it was time to cross cables, that ultimately I gave up and started putting them in when I felt like it. These were not made 2-at-once and so the crossings don't match from sock to sock. But because of my counting insufficiencies, they didn't match anyway. About half-way through the second sock is when I started this. It's not obvious at all. Of course, nothing is obvious in the first picture. I think it shows the thickness of the socks, though. And it's the only picture that shows both. This is Lynne's piano. I don't have a piano, but if I did, I couldn't play it.
The color is more accurate in the second picture. You can nearly see the cables. You can also see how thick these are. They fit very well, though and can be worn in shoes. I still don't want to subject them to hard wear yet. Right now they're for keeping my tootsies warm at night while the winter winds try to annihilate humankind.
I included picture number three because it shows the fuzziness the best. My feet really care. They are quite happy. I think I should call them Happy Fuzzy Socks. They are a big success. Maybe I should call them Big Success Socks. Angora Luxury Socks? Happy Fuzzy Big Success Angora Luxury Socks?
