Hey, yeah, those didn't turn out so hideous after all. LOL The yarn did some really neat things on the leg part, and the big blotches on the feet don't look bad once the whole sock is there.
Very nice knitting. They look and fit great. Great toes.
It is interesting how different the socks look in the two views you show. Looking down at your two feet the zig-zags kind of disappear, but they show up very well from the side.
