Every weekend I disappear for a 300 mile drive into the prickly dry high desert where I get out and hike hike hike till the sun goes down ( darn you daylight savings time!!!!!).
The wonderful tube socks ( there are so many different kinds all listed under the Dream stockings are my true and trusted companion on my journeys. I am particularly fond of the Dream tubes as seen here on me in the dark greens.
As I start my trek in the cold desert mornings I pull the wonderful warmth of the tubes all the way up my legs to keep them snug. As the hike progresses i pull them down to a knee high and bell the remainder of the material around the tops of my shoes. Yes this may look a little odd, but if you have ever hiked in grassy areas you may be well aware off all the little prickly things….
…… like burs that can get wedged in and stuck in the tops of your shoe or work their way deep into your ankles. “Belling” (as I have dubbed it) solves this problem as well as alleviating the odd rock or two that can sometimes find its way into your hiking boots. I personally think it looks rather adorable and I always feel spiffy at the tops of every vista or warm and comfy in the cool canyons.
And as you all may have noticed….. WE HAVE STOCK IN THE M’S!!!!! Lots of new colors and the old favorites as well. I took a ton of pics today and hope to take some more tomorrow and will hopefully have all the images updated by Thursday! Have fun scouting around!

is that a photo of a porcupine? i really like the way the ‘bell’ looks on your shoes… so very cute!
i have bats and stray cats. fitting, eh?
Bats?! Those are everywhere around here. If you go out at dusk you can see them flitting around.
Just wanted to drop a little line. I am, unfortunately, a hard broke high schooler. My birthday/christmas is coming up, so I’m directing just about everyone I know to this site! ^^; Hope to have a beautiful pair of your MS43s, soon!
I just ordered the dark greens last week for x-mas for myself…. so very warm for cold winter feet….
O.O!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How did I manage to not notice that you got in more colors of those? I MUST HAVE those green ones! Maybe I’ll get some for myself as an early graduation gift since I’m getting my BA in Japanese this winter =D.
Cute socks and great photos…Congrats Shonnon..and thanks for the post Xilia.
