I want these OH SO MUCH. alas I can't knit socks - anyone out there itching for a project and willing to do 'em for me? I'll cover the expenses of the experiment, AND I'll send you a signed book or a nice print of one of my photos (of your choice) AND you'll have my undying gratitude!
EDIT: Socks will be forthcoming.... There are some majorly cool people out there, and I thank ALL of you who stepped up to the bar to offer your expertise in matters sockish... I will post pictures, when said footstuffs are in my possession. (Not that you want to stare at my FEET, but the socks themselves will be deserving of their brief moment in the spotlight...)
