Seanna Lea asked me an interesting question today and since I'm a bit light in the knitting content (ie I haven't touched yarn in 2 whole days and it isn't looking good for today) I thought I'd answer it here and ask you chime in as well:
What shoes do you wear your pretty socks in, or do you just wear them around the house?
I'm looking for something I can wear my pretty socks in ideally at work.
Well, until last week I was working in the free-dressing world of academia so I wore what I liked (I still can 3 days a week). I'm always cold so I wore my socks in my various pairs of winter boots and they didn't show. But that's okay because I knew I was wearing them.
If I want to shoe them off I like my Birks (several pairs) or I wear them in my Mag t-strap Mary Janes so they peek out the top. I find my socks don't fit into every pair of shoes and I have handknit sock shoes and other sock shoes which are mostly work and warm-weather shoes (I find my socks too warm after about April).
I think Mary Janes and Clogs are good for sock-flashing. Something a bit chunky to go with the slightly heavier texture of hand-knit socks.
What do you think?
