Unfortunately, they may also qualify for the World's Ugliest Socks. The fact that I forged ahead and got them done shows that I have great fortitude of character -- or that I am too stupid to frog and forget them. You can take your pick.
They started out innocently enough.
Lorna's Laces, in Colour No. 32, Forest. You can see the brown tree trunks and the mossy green of the forest floor, the brighter green of the leaves on the trees and the blue sky shining through. Yeah, right.
Instead of a dappled glade, I got .... stripes. Which in themselves can be fine, if that's what you think you're going to get, but that's not what I thought I was going to get. I had one leg done and was contemplating trying to make it do something else ... anything else ... until I really looked at them.
That green -- the leafy green -- washes through and gives them a lovely radioactive glow.
That green is sneaky. It's the type of colour you don't really notice inside, but when you go out, or under fluorescent lights, it zaps you.
I even tried flinging them into a bush.
No luck. Still ugly and radioactive. Oh well, I'll wear them on days when I dress in the dark, with really long pants and high shoes.
