Outlander socks

cablecuffsocksdone

I decided I ought to rename these socks because so much of the knitting was done watching the preposterous Outlander. I’ve now seen the first eleven hours and probably won’t watch the rest when they become available. I got rather tired of seeing the bag-of-bones heroine getting her clothes ripped off in every episode and even more tired of the programme’s anti-Englishness. Query: why is full frontal female nudity considered acceptable for mainstream television, but not male? Is there actually a rule about it?

Back to the socks. I like them, they fit well, you can wear the cuff turned up or down. Unfortunately every attempt to photograph them actually on my feet was a failure. Yesterday evening I started another pair, which will be more interesting to make.
