They're made with Jo Sharpe Silk Road Tweed which is discontinued now...I made a pair for Tim in dark blue and I envy these socks whenever I see him wearing them, so I hunted down some a while ago. They're thicker than most socks, but I don't mind that at all.
Yesterday was a busy day: long walk with dogs, followed by soccer (sad), followed by trip to the farmer's market and the plant store (lettuce and radishes and load of bread for dinner, lavender for the front yard), followed by planting of the plants, followed by "Pirate Radio". A good day. Except for the soccer part.
