Cuff - just your regular feather and fan.
I call them my Keuka Socks since my Alma Mater's school colors were green and gold. My fellow guild members call them my superhero socks since even a speeding bullet couldn't penetrate the tight-ass gauge on the feet. We're talking 11 1/2 stitches to the inch on 0s because apparently, I hate myself. I did the cuff on 1's to help it get over my heel a bit easier. Much frogging was done throughout the evolution of these socks. I thought the yarn was cursed. I thought I was allergic to it. (Thank you Carol for being so fabulous in trying to help me figure that one out!) I still haven't decided what I think of them. I finished them on Sunday, December 10th. Right before I had to bring my beloved cat, Morris, to the vet. That afternoon, I had to say goodbye to him. What started out as a great day for socks, ended up being one of the saddest days of my life. But they sure are pretty, eh?
