cromulent (adj.) - acceptable or legitimate
Calling something “cromulent” may seem a bit like damning with faint praise, but the word itself is so lovely that I think it accidentally intensifies itself. That’s kind of like socks with a particularly good stitch pattern. A sock is a fairly ordinary thing, but give it a little decoration and suddenly it seems much more interesting.
The Cromulent Socks are knit from the cuff down with a twisted 1x1 ribbed cuff and a a soothing stitch pattern of eight stitches over four rows. My favorite detail, though, is the Eye of the Partridge texture on the heel flap. I love when structural things like a reinforced heel flap can also be interesting to look at. These cromulent little bits of knitting will work up quickly and keep you cozy.
