They are a great color of Trekking XXL and are knit SO NICELY by my sockpal Allison. And along with the socks and post card, she sent a green chibi (which actually matches the socks). It is so cute, and I don't have one, and I do have tapestry needles floating around in my knitting bag. So that makes it even better. Did I mention I really love my socks. I tried them on and they fit perfectly! (See photos below.) I wish I could declare I am never taking the socks off, but since the weather here has been of the shorts and sandals variety lately, I think I am going to have to save them for fall.
You should go check out Allison's Blog, not only because she is newly engaged and there is a cute photo of her with fiance, but because the motto across the top of her blog is GREAT. I am not going to tell you what it is, you will just have to visit to see for yourself. Thanks again Allison!
