Runway =/= Realway

spring grass knee high
Just a few pictures before I bind off. Some wonkiness in the increases.. will improve later on. Now, girls, what the hell do I wear these with? I am definitely not a mini-skirt kind of gal.
Update: Every year, when fall rolls around, all fashion magazines start featuring knee highs and stockings in bazillion colors featuring shots of models in their high heels. Sure it looks interesting on the pages, but let me tell ya girls.. runway doesn't equate to real way. Come on, how would you wear this out on the streets? (feel free to ignore my rolled up jammies. Yea and that indoor apt lighting..ignore that one too)
P.S. Each sock requires less than 180yds for a 60 sts foot and ankle, 64-68 sts calf, then back to 60sts just below the knee.

Very pretty knee-highs! They almost make me want to start wearing knee-highs again (after 12+ yrs of Catholic school, I'm knee-high'ed out).

And I don't see any cankles?!? :>

I could not pull it off by a long shot, but you, look fab with the knee-highs and the high heels. I think you need a mini-skirt too. You gotta show off those beauty socks! ;)

Damn! They look fantastic. You definitely should wear them out, with a cute skirt, if not a mini then one just hitting the knee.

Looooove the socks. They could carry any fall fashion mag spread. How about with a knee-length skirt, or even with heels+pants, so part of the socks could still be seen.
