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.
