My socks, yo!

They are done!

I am lovin them except for one minor detail. Is it just me (no of course not, it is never just me), or do my beautiful green socks look a little camouflage-y?

I mean, don't get me wrong, I strongly believe that I have the right to bear arms and hide in the woods and shoot stuff. And, I might have to wear camo to do this. It's just that for me? Ew! I don't have a gun, I don't need a gun, and my feet need not be camouflaged to blend in with foliage while I am all hunting and shizzle.

On second thought, maybe I do need camouflaged feet ... I could end up hunting very short, grass-dwelling, creatures, without shoes. Or, I might be a contestant in a waltz-in-the-yard-wearing-no-shoes contest; I'd definitely look like I was gracefully floating. Or, I might end up in a fight with Oscar the Grouch and need to disorient and confuse him with my kung-fu cunning kicks. Ok, so I will never need camouflaged socks, but still, I like them!
