In Which the Pirate Plans Pants.

The polar vortex is one of the main topics of conversation lately. Even here in Virginia, for much of the past month we’ve been bundling up in hat and scarf and gloves, and school was canceled several times simply because it was too cold. Of course, the subject of “how to keep warm” comes up often, especially with folks who’ve never lived in northern lands. Long johns, of course, are helpful – I have some really great UnderArmour cold gear that makes me feel like I’m wearing a superhero costume – but then the idea of merino long johns was brought up.

I immediately thought of the Nether Garments.

That sent me scurrying off to Webs where I bought, on sale, four balls of Online Supersocke 6-ply in this most awesomely terrible colourway. It’s so bad, it’s good. I actually love mustard-yellow, even though it’s a colour I can’t wear near my face or I look as if I’m just getting over the flu. On my legs, it should be just fine.


This is gonna be amazing.

    That looks to be something rather fun. And yes, I agree about not wanting it near your face…I think I’d also look like I was getting over the flu if I had that color near my face. Maybe not. I’m pretty red in the face normally…

    Either way, fun socks ahead!
