So I have some sad news about my green socks. They seem to have lost some of their greenness in the (hand)wash.
The water was much greener than the pictures show and I felt a little ill. But, I waited to let them dry to see just how much, and it isn't too bad. They are still GREEN socks. But (isn't there always a but?), it seems that because they were a little too big (like all of the socks I've made thus far - how is it that I can't seem to measure my own feet right) that they felted in some places from the wear!
Have no worries though, I am still going to wear the heck out of them. In fact, they are warming my feet right this very second.
