My socks arrived ::happy dance::

Woohoo! - My cranked socks arrived...Look at these beauties...

The Wollmeise Pure 100% in Mon Cheri:

P1080035

This was one of the first skeins I owned..that I convinced a longtime WM-hoar to part with.
The socks are very very comfy..and I'm very pleased with them.

Ribbed body (5 x 1) with a ribbed cuff:

P1080012

P1080011

Sanguine Gryphon Eidos in Nuit (Blue Poison Dart Frog equivalent):

P1080010

One sock is more red-purple, and the other has more green.
The body is plain stockinette; and the cuff is a picot cuff.

P1080009

Here's a close-up of the feet:

P1080042

Third pair is Verdant Gryphon Bugga in Blue Stick Insect:

P1080008

P1080007

Plain stockinette body and ribbed cuff:

P1080006

P1080036

and I re-discovered that my feet are indeed smaller in the eve/late night than morning.
The ribbed socks fit the best, and the others fit better in the morning, and become more loose as the day wears on.
