Here is the sock I knitted for my sock roulette partner. I hope she likes yellow.
I've seen various opinions in the knitosphere about the appropriateness/desirability of photographing your socks worn with high heels. Personally, I like it (obviously), but that's because I love high heeled shoes, and I wear them all the time.
When it comes to shoes, I have tranny taste. As a matter of fact, it's something I've learned to like about me.
The argument that it isn't a practical application of the article is neither here nor there with me. I only really wear my knitted socks around the house anyway, not being much of a flat shoe person - winter or summer. Besides, it's only a picture, not a serving suggestion.
In any case, after you've exerted a not so small amount of energy choosing the most photogenic wall in your house, placing your camera on an upside down tupperware container, roped in some extra lighting and stood on you tiptoes with one leg in the air whilst pressing the shutter button with a broomstick you'll realise that wearing the high heel isn't the bizzare thing. More than once did I think this is a mighty stupid thing to do.
Still, keeps me off the streets I guess. And in those shoes, probably just as well!

Hedera by Cookie A.
Yarn: Superwash Merino Nylon Sock yarn hand painted by knitabulous (full range coming soon? depends on what day you ask me.)
Colourway: Lemon Crisp
Modifications: None really, except I kept the twisted stitch flanking either side of the centre lace panel all the way down the sock. The pattern loses it at the heel. Doesn't make that much of a difference, except it changes the needle arrangement for the foot part.
