I got an email early in Socktoberfest from blogless Leslie (who I am hoping to meet in San Francisco in a few days!), about how to work your handcrafted socks into your day-to-day fashion:
I would love to see photos of how people WEAR their socks. That is, I have been making socks in all kinds of beautiful yarns and sometimes bright colors… Once I'm done, I wonder, "What in the world am I going to wear these with?" … I absolutely love these socks but I wonder what in the world I'm going to wear them with. My loafers are black and brown. Could I wear them with white tennis shoes in the cold weather? Anyway, I'd love to see not just photos of people's socks but also photos of people's socks on their feet with the SHOES they wear them with. I love knitting with colors like that but I'd love photos of how people really wear them.
Leslie's question was also echoed in the Socktoberfest Flickr group discussions, so the question, how do you wear your socks?
I wear my handknit socks often, but unfortunately, I do not always photograph how I wear them… of the ones I have captured, here are a few of the ways I actually wear my socks!
Sneakers, clogs, and Mary Janes! I also wear my Dublin Bay socks with a small kitten-heel dress shoe for work – they look pretty good that way (I think!)
Now it's your turn! How do you wear your handcrafted socks??
