I’ve recently discovered wool socks. On a whim, I ordered a four-pack of winter-themed wool socks. When I wear them, I have little evergreen trees and Fair Isle patterns encircling my feet. I liked them so much that I took myself down to Walmart and bought another two-pack of wool socks, this time in eggplant and lavender. And then I thought, hey, I like these a lot, so I went back and got the same two-pack of wool socks in pale blue and grey.
And then you know what I did? I went back to Walmart to get a three-pack of those trendy wool work socks, the grey ones with the red and off-white stripes along the top edge — you know the ones.
So now, with the bitter winds of winter fast approaching, my feet are ready — perhaps over-prepared, one might say — to brave the cold. Are yours?
