    socks

    i would like to find some socks that are long enough to reach up to the bottom of my knickers....about 2/3 the way up my calf

    have plenty of long hiking/fishing socks but they are way to thick...must be thin to fit in my shoes

    would like wool and something other than black

    any suggestions

    These are padded on the bottom and thin on the instep.

    Thorlo makes the best socks.

    Try the local army/navy surplus store. I've got socks that cover the calf for $6/pr.

    Buy some tights. Then you can wear regular length socks.

    When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. Arthur Conan Doyle
