warm and cheery

I love how warm and bright these socks are. I bought three pairs - red background, black background, blue background (two margaritas and a saturn). The blue ones seem to have thicker padding under the foot, which has puffed out at the stiches where it joins the rest of the foot in little wisps. Scissors did the trick for me. I get very cold feet and hands in general, but these keep my feet warm on their own around the house or with just mary janes on the go. Also, my feet don't get sweaty as they do with many other warm socks.

They are cozy and fit my size 7-1/2 to 8 foot well. I think they would fit a longer foot fine too though, as I do have to pull the heel to where I want it at the start of the day.

They go very well with neutral colors or bright/black solids, as they demand a lot of attention which conflicts with most of my print skirts.

My only gripe about them is that the top band/cuff is a little tight. That being said, it is normal for me to have that complaint about most socks; I generally just turn the cuff down around my ankle. These do look good enough on the reverse/inside that I am comfortable with that.
