Pretty kicky socks

First I tried to photograph my own feet with my new socks on. There were lots of shots like this -- various close-up parts-of-socks:

There were also lying-flat shots (like this one), but that’s a little boring. So then I went for outside help and found a photographer who was willing and able to capture the kicky nature of my new socks.

I love this Cherry Tree Hill merino. The colours are gorgeous (though I’ve been warned that they fade), and the yarn is scrumptious to knit. I cast on 68 stitches and just did a 2-by-2 rib down the leg and top of foot, and a good old-fashioned heel flap/round heel combo. I love these. They’re like buttah, in the colours of a rose garden.
