EDIT 9/8/10: I noticed that for some reason my blog got linked to Sock Dreams blog (because WordPress feels it needs to “promote” me or something), so just know that it was unintentional. I do love me some Sock Dreams though. Also, I bought some of the white cotton slouch socks (middle picture of the whites) and some slouch socks in Seafoam. I’m even wearing my otks as slouches right now… what has Japanese manga done to me?!
I finally have some time to myself, so of course, how do I spend it? Looking at socks online of course. This week there are actually two things I really want right now.
First up: White socks. No really. You read that correctly. I don’t own a single pair of white socks that aren’t just little midcalf sport socks that you buy in bulk. I have white socks with carrots on the backs, but bad memories kind of keep me from wearing those a whole lot (don’t ask). Anyway, since it’s back to school time, Sock Dreams had a blog about white socks for uniforms and some of the styles are seriously super cute!
Now, the second thing I’ve been coveting lately, isn’t so easy to come by…
Since we’ve had a bit of chilly (yes, I called 60s and 70s “chilly”), I decided to dig out my arm warmers for a night. This led to a bit of mild disappointment because all of my arm warmers come up to about mid humerus, at best. That leaves at very least a good couple inches of exposed skin! What I really want are loooong FULL sleeves! So, naturally, I went shopping for them! Do you think I could find any to fit these lanky arms? Of course not! I think I might buy some really long leg warmers and see if they can be adapted as sleeves, lol. Simone’s Sleeves from Cronert are 21 inches long and still too short for my arms. The trouble though is finding warmers that a) are long enough, b) don’t have cuffs/elastic at both ends and c) are in my price range. Bahh. I do have a few candidates though:
I don’t know how well, if at all, any of them will work. I think as the days grow colder though, it might be worth some experimenting!
Anyway, until I grow bored again, Happy Sock Hunting everyone <3
