Things I learned during this FO photo shoot:

1. Virginia Beach in August is HOT.
2. It is very difficult to photograph your own legs by yourself.
3. Aforementioned VB heat + acrylic/wool legwarmers = DEAR JESUS, MELTING.

Possibly I already knew those things already. Anyway.

Aside from the fact that it’s fucking HOT and wearing these outside was kind of miserable, I really like how they came out. I used up some stash, I’ll have warm socks come winter, and they’re pretty cute. They’re a little loose at the top, so I’ll have to wear a garter belt or some garters or something, but provided I can get them to stay up, I suspect they’ll get a lot of wear come cooler weather.

Also: Sock Jag? Still happening.
