Golden

People, it’s cold outside. Cold and very very snowy.  So I am not going to go outside to try and find a spot with little enough snow that I can take a picture of these.  I know I should, but I’m just not.  You’ll have to settle for a uncharacteristically well-scrubbed kitchen counter and a rare streak of January sunlight.  I think it will serve to show off the pretty quite well enough.

_DSC9436That’s the fat socks (String Theory Caper Aran in Melon) on the right, and the skinny socks (String Theory Caper Sock in Beach Plum) on the left.  The fat socks use the alarmingly-plain-yet-unreasonably-satisfying variant of the pattern, and the skinny socks use the still-soothing-but-slightly-more-swoopy variant.  I truly cannot decide which one I like better.  They’re both rather smashing, if I do say so myself.  And the toes, cutest toes ever!  See?

_DSC9443The pattern will be coming fairly soon (read, likely some time in March).  I’m taking the socks off with me on a bit of an excursion next week and hope to get them photographed while I’m away.  Then it’s a few more rounds with testers, and they’ll be ready for release.
