Man, I love that pattern. It is PERFECT for STR. You did such a great job.

The shoe thing - you are evil. I love those merrells. :)

Socks look great! I love the colorway, and it's good to know you can flap and gusset from the toe up.

I like the color of the Danskos best with the Carbon Dating, but I love Danskos anyway.

That colorway is so pretty for Leyburns....and I'm VERY jealous of your shoes - esp. the Merrells!

Wow. Looks great! Those socks look great in all of the choices you have!

You and I have more than just knitting in common! Keen, Dansko, Merrell and Zappos. I love Zappos! They are THE best aren't they?
