More striped socks…

You probably remember the last pair of Kit Couture Garpen Socks–not so long ago!  There was quite a bit of wool left over.  So I decided I could surely make a second pair (and pulled out my scales just to check).  here I am at the railway station on my way to work with a cunning plan (also, a pair of socks to post, lunch and a chia pudding in a vegemite jar–I love a good plan).


Here I am making headway on a night train.


Then came the sudden realisation (in a day long meeting) that, in fact, these socks were not going to match at all.  I’d like to pretend this was a decision I made, but it was not.  At this point I decided it would not be OK to rip out in a meeting, and quite frankly, I didn’t fancy ripping out anyway and–I quite like them.  Though that is the self serving attitude, I admit!


And here they are in all their glory…


Mismatched or glorious?

  2. Yes, go for it! They are lovely. But only wear them around the house without shoes so you can show off their uniqueness.

  4. Great match! And at least you can hitch your trouser legs up on the train and watch all the faces when they think you’re wearing odd ones…
