Woohoo! - My cranked socks arrived...Look at these beauties...
The Wollmeise Pure 100% in Mon Cheri:
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:
Sanguine Gryphon Eidos in Nuit (Blue Poison Dart Frog equivalent):
One sock is more red-purple, and the other has more green.
The body is plain stockinette; and the cuff is a picot cuff.
Here's a close-up of the feet:
Third pair is Verdant Gryphon Bugga in Blue Stick Insect:
Plain stockinette body and ribbed cuff:
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.
