Without wearing the socks myself and contorting myself in order to take a reasonable shot of the socks, its difficult to show off socks that have matching but 'opposite' patterns on the outside of the foot. Are they mirror images? Each pattern for each sock is different. There is therefore a right sock and a left sock.
For a long time I have been admiring the wooden sock and stocking forms or blockers in Museums, and were aware that there were modern ones in plastic. Of course they are quite unnessary when knitting socks...but its a great way of showing off the patterns of socks such as these. I was delighted to source some nicely made ones.
