In today's video, we compare $4 versus $40socks, we'll talk about the differences, the advantages, disadvantages, and why one costs10 times as much as the other.

I get it, socks are not a style enthusiasts'most sexiest subject, but in fact, they can have a huge impact on the way your whole outfitlooks.

Socks have a unique ability to add some colorto the bottom half of your outfit and therefore you can tie your entire outfit together, forexample, you can coordinate it with your shoes, your tie, or your pocket square.

The only other two options are either, toexchange your shoelaces and you can learn more about how to that here in this videoor you can buy different colored shoes which is a lot more expensive and those kinds ofshoes are typically less versatile.

In our opinion, socks are a gentleman's secretweapon to tying together an entire outfit and bringing it alive.

For instance, I use socks to make a neat transitionbetween my pants and my shoes without sacrificing contrast or visual interest.

So the big question is, for an item that youneed to replace regularly in your wardrobe, should you spend $4 on it or $40? First, let's look at the $4 socks.

I bought a 5-pack of Dockers Men's Dress Socksfor 20 bucks.

So, that comes out to be about 4 bucks perpair.

Now ideally, that seems like a good deal especially since they are sized and I gotthe size 10 to 13 because I'm typically a US 11.

Of course, if you are on the edges of thesize category, chances are they may be a little loose or quite tight.

When I shopped for a $4 socks, I came acrossmuch larger size brackets such as 6 to 12 or one size fits most.

Now even though I followed the size range, the problem is that there is so much elastics in there that actually pinches my calves overthe course of the day.

Not only that it restricts my blood flow, but it's also quite uncomfortable.

In terms of color on the website, it lookslike they came in black and khakis and variations thereof.

When I got them in person, they are solidripped khaki pair, there's an argyle pattern, there is a small pattern in brown and khakibut also two in brown.

Now at these tones work with Khakis or maybebrown pants, you have a problem with any kind of business suit socks such as charcoal ornavy or gray.

Also, we take a closer look at the solid socks, it's really hard to match a pair of solid socks to a pair of patterned or solid pantsbecause most of the time the shade is not quite matching and it just looks off.

When we get our $4 socks, they're pretty limitedin the color range and you may find black or gray, something brownish or khaki but that'sabout it.

Now, even though they're advertised as dresssocks, they're actually mid-calf height and because of that, they don't stay up.

Gravity is just too strong over the courseof the day, so they'll just move down towards your ankle.

As a consequence, it will probably exposeyour legs which is unprofessional because no one wants to see your hairy legs at theoffice.

And now, even you shave your legs, peoplestill don't want to see it.

Now, on the material mix on the website, itwas advertised as 71% polyester, 26% cotton, 2% spandex, and 1% nylon, the actual packageitself looks different.

Here, it says 83% polyester, 15% cotton, and2% spandex.

Upon touching them, they feel quite soft andcomfortable because polyester can be finished to be very soft these days.

Frankly though, polyester is the cheapestof all materials that you can use in your clothing but it also ages very poorly andquickly.

How? Well, soon you'll find peeling and it justwon't stand the test of time and always look like a hand me down that's old and worn.

Polyester is also insulating, which meansthat you're more prone to sweating with these kinds of socks and just having worn feet overthe course of the day.

When I put on those socks, I noticed 2 thingsright away.

One was how thick they were compared to amore expensive pair of socks and two, the toe area.

When you need a pair of socks, it has to befinished in this toe area because machines are not quite able to do that.

Now, if it's done by machine, it's usuallyvery bulky and that's exactly what you get with a $4 pair of socks.

The problem is you will always feel this elevatedseam inside your shoe especially when you walk a lot.

So in nutshell, who are $4 socks for? They are for men who think short term, whowant the cheapest pair of socks that they can find without having to resort to whitetennis socks.

They're also for men who don't mind sweatyfeet and don't really want a comfortable pair of socks.

Now, let's go on to the $40 socks.

What exactly makes them 10x as expensive? First of all, they are sized to your foot.

Most high-end socks come in a number of differentsizes and at Fort Belvedere, we offer 5 different sizes — Small, Medium, Large, Extra-large, and Double Extra Large.

This allows as to adequately cover the sizeranges all the way from size 6 to size 15.

Of course, if you look at the length difference, it is apparent.

The more expensive $40 socks are the trueover-the-calf sock that is below the knee and stays up all day comfortably.

Over-the-calf socks are the gentlemen's choiceand at Fort Belvedere, we only offer that style, nothing mid-calf or shorter becausethey will just inevitably slide down and for me, it is really important to design a sockthat stays up.

In our mind, the biggest advantage of a $40socks compared to a $4 socks is their versatility.

And now, most men don't even think about thatwhen they buy a pair of socks.

Obviously, we love men's style and we wantyou to look as good as possible.

To learn more about the basics of how youcan combine pants, socks, and shoes so you look dapper, please check out this free guidehere.

So $40 socks don't just come in a much largerrange of colors for you to choose from, but they typically also come in 2 different colorsthat are combined and the combination of that allows you to wear a single pair of sockswith a multitude of outfits and pants and they will always look like it matches andworks together versus a solid, plain color sock will always look off.

Just think about navy, charcoal, or gray fora second which are the most popular business colors.

They properly come in hundreds, maybe evenin thousands of different shades.

If you have two colors combined, for example, a navy blue and a lighter blue, you can wear it any shade of navy that's always gonna work.

Or look at these socks, for example, it'skind of a grayish blue and a light blue combined, so it can work with any type of gray pants, charcoal pants or navy pants that will always look good.

That's the true hidden power of two-tone socksthat most men underestimate.

And it also works with different colors, forexample, look at these socks, they're actually a combination of purple and white.

And there is something that I would call afalse solid because from afar, they look like a solid but if you look at closer, they areactually made up of two colors.

They can be worn with any kind of brown pantsand they look great.

They can be worn with denim or maybe withsomething in charcoal or with a pair of chinos.

Now, that's true versatility.

Compared to this pair of sock in brown, itjust doesn't work with gray.

Yes, it somewhat works with a brown, yes itworks with chinos, it doesn't look that great with any blue or denim.

In Fort Belvedere, we try to design our socksso you'll get a large range of different colors in two-tone patterns that work with a multitudeof outfits.

You also won't find rocket ships or pizzason our socks and if you want to learn more about why crazy socks are overrated, pleasecheck out this video here.

Now, as you'll imagine, a pair of $40 socksis made up of premium materials.

For example, you can find silk, cashmere, or blends thereof.

Even if socks are made up of cotton, not allcotton is alike.

You can find cheaper cotton with shorter staplelengths or you can find higher-end cotton with a longer staple length that is twistedtwice for consistency and longevity of the yarn and that way, you just end up with asock that is much more comfortable because it is all made of natural fibers, not artificialfibers like nylon or polyester and that won't insulate.

In reality is just the raw material of a $40socks costs more than the entire $4 socks.

Because of that, you can make a yarn muchthinner and knit a sock that is much more finely knitted.

Of course, with a larger number of needles, it takes longer to make a pair of socks.

However, the fine gauge knit of a high-enddress socks is always a hallmark because you will not be able to find any expensive sockthat is fine as a high-quality sock.

Also, the machines used and the country oforigin are typically different.

All the $4 socks are made in China, Fort Belvederesocks are exclusively made in Italy of a 100% natural fibers.

And because there's a tradition of craftsmanshipand socks making in Italy, all the socks are finely finished by hand so there is no bulkyseam at the toe that would provide any discomfort to you when you walk.

Consider that cotton is absorbent and as insulatingpolyester, you will have just a much more pleasant experience walking around in yourdress shoes throughout the day.

So, is it worth it to pay 10x as much fora higher-end pair of socks? Well, ultimately that is up for you to decide.

In my book, it is definitely worth it especiallywhen you consider that you can buy a pair of 3, 6, or 12 socks and can bring down theprice down all the way to $30 per pair.

That would allow you to get 12 different colorsof socks, meaning, you'll basically equipped to handle any kind of situation with the rightpair of socks.

It also makes travel easier because you canbring along a small amount of pair of socks and you don't have to think about what colorworks exactly with it because you can be confident it's gonna work out.

So in conclusion, $40 socks come in many sizes, the $4 socks come in very few or just 1 size.

While the material of the cheaper socks won'tstand the test of time, the pilling will look bad and make you sweat, higher-end materialsallow for thinner socks that look more elegant with your dress shoes and your fine outfitand they're more breathable and overall more comfortable when you wear them.

On top of that, $40 socks are true over-the-calfversus cheaper socks are mid-calf that cut of your circulation and just slide down topmake you look unprofessional.

On top of that, $4 socks are finished by machinesin its toe area, making it less comfortable to wear them versus the $40 socks are finishedby hand so you have a smooth result and don't feel anything.

Most importantly, while $4 socks usually comein colors of black, gray, brown, or khaki, $40 socks come in a range of 15 or 20 differentcolors especially in color combinations that allow you to really look your best withouthaving to think about it very much.

In today's, video, I'm wearing a casual outfitthat is built around the color green.

It starts with a green cable-knit sweaterand I combined it with a green checkered shirt as well as a brown knit tie.

My pants are of brownish green and a nicetwill weave and my shoes are dark green suede test loafers with accents of brown.

I combined them with a pair of green socksby Fort Belvedere that tied the entire outfit together seamlessly.

Of course, my pinky ring has a green bloodstonewhich works with the entire outfit.

Learn to Knit Socks part 2 – Heel Flap

okay now you've had a chance to finish up the cuff of the sock and it should look something like this the pattern tells you to do the knit 2 purl 2 rib for 2 inches but really you can make it any length that you like you just have

to remember to make the other sock to match so and I want to show you first how to measure to see how much cuff you have one thing you can do is you can count the number of stitches by counting the v's all the way up like this

or you can take your your ruler and set it I'm putting the last line of five here right at the bottom of the needle and measuring all the way down so from 5 to 3 I have a solid two inches there but usually what I'll do is I

will count the stitches to make sure the two socks match exactly okay the next thing that we're going to get started on here now that we have two inches of cuff is to make the heel flap and this is what the heel flap looks like when you're finished

with it you stop knitting with two needles and just knit back and forth like you want a scarf on one needle now you can see this doesn't look like straight stockinette or straight knitting like you would see here in the rib this stitch is called eye of partridge

I have Partridge yes I have partridge and every other stitch is slipped and it makes it a denser fabric than regular stockinette stitch and the reason for that is because the back of the heel is a high wear spot on socks and so a denser fabric will keep

you from getting holes in your socks so I already told you these socks aren't that great for stuffing into shoes but this is all really good practice because these are things that you will see in every sock pattern that you ever knit so that's the heel flap I'm

going to show you how to get started on that right now so take your your cuff and rearrange the stitches remember here is the beginning of our round because that's where the tail and the yarn is rearrange the stitches so that you have 20 stitches on the first

needle and 10 on the other two and now I don't want to mess up the space here the beginning of my round so I'm going to transfer everything this way and not mess this up so I already know I have 16 stitches on this needle so I'm going

to transfer four two three four that should give me 22 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18 20 yes and I have 2 4 6 8 on this needle so I'm going to transfer 2 from the other one on to hear when you're slipping stitches you always

transfer and slip stitches as if to purl if you transfer as if to knit you're going to twist the stitches now I'm saying always but there's an exception coming up here pretty soon but I'm going to transfer these as if to purl so I don't twist them ok

so here's the beginning of my round 20 stitches on needle 1 and 10 stitches on needles 2 and 3 now I'm just going to work back and forth on needle 1 for now if you look at your pattern the the heel flap is a two row pattern let

me show you how this looks grab an empty needle I'm going to slip the first stitch as if to knit knit the next stitch and that's what the pattern says you repeat that pattern all the way across the whole first row slip as if to purl knit slip

as if to purl knit slip as if to purl knit this is the secret to the denser fabric that I was telling you about it's the eye of partridge stitch I always think bird of paradise it's not paradise it's eye of partridge something to do with birds okay

so that was Row one now for Row 2 we're not knitting in the round anymore we're knitting back and forth so I'm just going to flip it as if I was knitting a scarf just on this needle here the other two needles just going to hang there and

wait for me to come back to them now don't get confused by the pattern here Row one was alternating slipping knitting slipping knitting slipping knitting all the way across the row row two you only slip the first stitch I even put it in caps purl across all remaining

stitches you slip the first one and then purl across the rest that let me show you as if to purl and purl across all of the remaining stitches okay no slipping after the first stitch that's it that is the two row repeat for the heel flap you're going

to alternate those two rows for 20 rows total and then work Row 1 one more time and I always use one of these this is a Cacho row counter this one's awesome because it has a lock on it that keeps it from registering rows when you're not when

it's in your knitting bag you're not using it you want to keep track of your rows it's a little bit hard to count when at least for me it is what I switch from the ribbing to the eye of partridge stitch there's always a question whether it's one

row less or one row more so I always keep count with one of these in fact I'm so awesome that I always wear it around my neck on a ratty piece of yarn and find myself in the grocery store later still wearing it wonder why people are looking

at me funny so repeat those two rows for 20 rows total work Row one one more time 21 rows and when you come back we'll work on turning the heel you

Sock It To 'Em, Deputies Tuggle and Dilling, COPS TV SHOW

[Music] we got light of the car and we saw that was speeding and we were gonna stop it for that violation when we got behind it it exited and took a different Road and failed to stop at the soft sign so we we turned our lights on the

car pulled over to the side of the road and we made contact with both the driver and the passenger and as soon as we walked up to the vehicle we can see that they were both very nervous my approach approach the pastor was you know I asked for

his ID and I was like to let him hold it out there for a second and he was shaking bad he was visibly shaking guys doing do you have a license oh so you really shouldn't be driving then you step on the car for me please you're not

necessarily going to jail ma'am but we got to figure out what's going on okay I went up and I got the information from the driver and my partner went up and got the information from the passenger he stayed with the occupants of the vehicle to make sure that

they're not gonna destroy any evidence or pull out a weapon or hurt either one of us and my partner went back to patrol vehicle and started widen up to see if they were you know any violent felons if they were wanted for anything you know check the status

of the license they both knew that they were suspended so I never lost my dog just gave a positive alert to the odor of a narcotic in the vehicle which means you've had drugs in the car recently or somebody you knows don't drugs in the car I'm gonna

find any drugs in the car okay could you see you tell me I'm never done any drugs in the car but you got needles in your pocket off the bat and another one that doesn't jive ascribe it but you know no doctor prescribes injections we're fortunate have a

k-9 on our unit and the k-9 arrived you know within a couple minutes of the traffic stop so while we were dealing with you know run to the people and checking them and all that and talking to our k-9 unit was able to show up and he walked

his dog around a vehicle they cannot alerted to the presence of drugs in the car and when you get that alert you're immediately thinking that it's gonna be inside the car after searching this car very thoroughly we weren't able to find anything illegal in the car so that

makes you think that the the drugs or whatever is illegal is didn't be on the people that were in the car so we we searched both of them and initially couldn't find anything and when we got down to the defendants socks he became real apprehensive and uncooperative he

did not want to take his socks off he's out yeah like take them off on the side of the road taking your socks off it's not unfair yeah won't this pull this foot out here then my clothes officer stop good criminals aren't just gonna hide stuff in their

pockets in their waistband they're gonna hide stuff where where you don't necessarily want to go and feel around and and have to touch but sometimes if if you you know something's there you've got a you've got a glove up and and and do that you pull it again

listen you pull away again you're gonna get slammed on the ground please don't do that so at that point he knew he was caught he knew that we found the drugs on him and after we read him his rights he owned up to everything and he tried to

give a story about his mom that she'd been sick and and she'll be real upset that he's getting arrested in her cars getting towed which rightfully so she probably will be upset but that doesn't change the fact that he's out there doing drugs carrying drugs and going to

jail you know I honestly think those guys you know do that to try to tug at your heartstrings so that you know you're gonna kind of get lazy – all this guy doesn't have something and you know maybe let him go if you find something but you know

you know if he's if his mom's in that bad of shape and he's out doing what he's doing he really doesn't care maybe who had stopped and thought about a little bit and not done drugs tonight you'd be home into your mom they said it going to jail

the car unfortunately because he didn't have a license I can't let him drive it away from here it's gonna get towed all right what's she like at the end of the traffic stop the driver had a suspended license so we went ahead and wrote in the summons to

go to court and the passengers on that went to jail for the drugs you know it's good that you know you think man they gave me that I missed something it's good you know it's good if it's just my little mountain you know they didn't beat you you

got their drugs you put them in jail so it's a good feeling you

Let's Be Literal About Sock Yarn // Episode 7 // Knitting

hi hello it is it is the countess I hope you're very very well today I am jumping on very quickly because I want to talk about something that's it gets on my nerves a little bit this is something that I spoke about in a blog post a couple

of years ago so I'm just gonna recreate it now in video form and in verse your ever so slightly so let's go let's be literal about sake on so I have a bit of a gripe about sake on I'm quite literal about what sake on is to me

sake on means quite literally yawn is suitable for sock knitting or crocheting which is why on the website I have always distinguished between sock yarn and fingering yarn and we do exactly the same thing here in our studio in Manchester behind me this wall here is everything that

is suitable for sock knitting and then over on the other side off-camera is yarn that is fingering weight that is not suitable at all for knitting socks yes I know I am using the word fingering which is an Americanism instead of 4 ply that opens up a whole

other discussion about plies and which we can do another time let's do that another time but anyway it means I get to say that I have fingering floor which means I'm very very juvenile and it does elicit a couple of Snickers so yes that is what ideas the

terms sock yarn and fingering are often interchangeable and this comes up with problems and as we've all evolved to read the internet in well numbers really cheers the speed of that then I have a numerical list so we'll start with number one number one just because a yarn

is in the region of 350 to 400 and 25 meters in length it does not mean that it is going to be suitable for sock knitting number two merino beautifully squishy it takes dye like a dream however it needs nylon blended in for something I think merino has

a very short staple length very very short which makes it viable to pill when you just look at it it pills very very easily therefore it is not strong number three single ply-yarns should not be used to knit socks so for instance we have T merino here which

is a superwash merino single ply yarn for the love of all things holy do not knit socks with this not only will when you blog will go to block it it will stretch out hugely which is why we recommend always that it is just for Shores however you

need a plied yarn for strength ideally with a nice tight twist so because these single ply-yarns they stretch so much you're going to end up with socks that you're going to trip over and I'm you know I'm the kind of person who will laugh at that kind of

thing you know you probably don't want me to do that but seriously you need that strength you will just wear them the once and that's it just the once you will have holes in them in no time number four yarns made from a long stable length fiber such

as mohair or Blueface Leicester are the absolute dog's bollocks for sock knitting they are very very tough they do not pill very easily at all so they look newer for longer and you don't necessarily need to have nylon blended in you just need a really good twist in

that ply for instance I have a pair of socks here which is designed by Jane Morrison who goes by the name yarnís n' and these are called manhole socks these here are knitted in the colorway urbex on the blue-faced baron fingering the st not have nylon him and

they hold up quite well very very well number five machine washable yarns they have their uses easy care and that is a bonus you can just toss them in the washing machine at 30 degrees and you're gonna be fine number 6 although non super wash yawns they're handy

if you do not mind hand washing personally I hand wash all of my socks even the machine washable ones just if anything to preserve the dye in them for much longer however with a non super wash yarn which is a yarn that has not been treated to be

machine washable you're going to find that the world will felts in high friction places like the heels and even a little bit but at the tone couldn't get away at the toes and even on the soles actually this can make you stronger sock because of the felting however

it also means nobody can steal your socks to wear them because they will have mold into your feet that is definitely one advantage so the yarns suitable for sock knitting and crocheting from us at countess ablaze are lady Persephone sock which is what you can see behind me

by count of spark which is merino and nylon with a bit of Stellina which is Apollo might the sparkles that also add a little bit of strength but with pomade also been made on and finally our super wash nylon free sock yarn is the blue faced Byron fingering

which is a high twist British blue face Leicester wool I'm also going to pick up the knitting goddess who they do a full I bricked sock which is let's have a look let me just make sure I've got this right it is British blue face Leicester Wensleydale alpaca

and nylon if you are wanting to make socks without nylon when wick mum has an excellent blog series where she reviews different ones and I'm gonna link to that underneath so the reason that I'm telling you this not only originally as a blog post on our website but

now recording this is a vlog for you I feel really really sad at how many stories we hear from people who have knitted socks with unsuitable yarn such as camel silk no no or single ply Merinos again really no simply because it has been sold to them as

sock yarn there needs to be a very distinct difference between sock yarn and fingering weights sock yarn is not a weight in my opinion so really there are times when being very very literal about this is a benefit so I hope this when you go looking through your

stash now as to what you want to make with me make your socks out of then you can choose with a little more thought but seriously don't come crying to me if you make tear Marino's arks they will never work they will never work I promise you know

I will speak to you again very very shortly bye bye

ORANGE SOCKS & WALKER COUNTY JANE DOE – WHO ARE THEY? | MIDWEEK MYSTERY

Hey guys and welcome back to my channel for day three of my mystery week and happy Halloween.

Today I've got two cases for you Which may or may not be interconnected both of which happened on Halloween or the day after We're talking about two separate Jane Doe cases: the case of “Orange Socks” and the “Walker County Jane Doe” and I honestly Honestly believe if these kinds of true crime videos can help solve any crime in the world, it will be a Jane Doe case it's just about getting the faces of these people these Jane and John, Doe's out there and maybe just maybe somebody will recognize them or somebody will Know one of their distinctive features or know of a second cousin that went missing one day and was never found again All it takes is for one person to know one thing and we can solve an entire case.

First we're going to talk about “Orange Socks” now “Orange Socks” the name given to an unidentified woman found on Interstate 35 in Georgetown, Texas on the 31st of October 1979 She was dubbed “Orange Socks” because all she was wearing when she was found was a pair of orange socks Apart from this she was fully naked.

So as you can probably guess she was sexually assaulted “Orange Socks” was white between five eight and five foot ten and she weighed between 140 and 160 pounds She had hazel eyes and almost shoulder-length brown hair but it had kind of a reddish tint to it and she was estimated to be between Fifteen to thirty years old.

Although a lot of people think that she's more likely towards the older end of the spectrum Her body wasn't in great condition She didn't take care of herself that well before she died, but she had never broken a bone in her body Her legs were unshaven and covered in bug bites and scars from old bug bites and her toenails were unusually long like she couldn't afford clippers to cut them.

Her fingernails were painted red She have a hairline scar underneath her chin And she suffered from salpingitis which is the inflammation of the fallopian tubes most likely caused, or it was caused, by gonorrhea.

Two of her teeth were missing, but the rest of the teeth were fairly well maintained but she'd never had any crowns or fillings, so she hadn't had extensive dental work.

She just had good teeth.

Alongside her orange socks She had a silver ring on the middle finger of her right hand and this ring either had an abalone or a mother-of-pearl stone in it She also had her ears pierced, but I don't think she had any earrings in.

She was determined to have died from manual strangulation She had lots and lots of bruising around her neck But she also had lots of bruising across the rest of her body but specifically on the left lower back.

Injuries indicated that she'd been dragged from the highway over the guardrail and Dragged through the grass before her body was dumped.

At the crime scene investigators found a bloody towel Which they said was used as a kind of makeshift Sanitary towel.

This combined with all of the other factors led investigators to believe this was a woman who was struggling financially She wasn't that well off.

Two matchboxes were also found at the scene one was from a Motel 6 and the other was from a hotel in Henrietta Oklahoma the general consensus was that “Orange Socks” was from Oklahoma or at least was in Oklahoma before she ended up in Texas and she was either a drifter or hitchhiker As far as Jane Doe cases go “Orange Socks” was in a really good position and it's really strange that she's never been identified by anyone.

Her face wasn't obscured by any injuries and she had very very distinctive features she's the kind of person that he could look at and remember It's almost beyond belief that not a single Person has recognized her or has come in to say they saw her anybody else in the days beforehand Years later one woman came forward she calls into America's Most Wanted and says that she actually saw “Orange Socks” earlier in the day Hitchhiking on the side of the road.

But other than that, we have no idea what her movements were before this “Orange Socks” is buried in the Odd Fellows cemetery in Georgetown, Texas her grave reads Unidentified Woman 1979 And that was it for “Orange Socks” for quite a few years.

There was very very little progress made.

Nobody recognized her Nobody came forward with any information whatsoever.

This is until a few years later when notorious serial killer Henry Lee Lucas Confesses to her murder On June 2nd 1983 Lucas said that she was a hitchhiker.

He picked her up from a Turnpike in Oklahoma City He said that he doesn't remember her name exactly.

It was either Joni or Judy He said that the two of them went to a truck stop together where they ate lunch And then they later had sex in a park.

He said that the sex just didn't satisfy him She just wasn't any good and so later on they're driving down the road and he asked her for sex again and she says: “no” He said: “I was drinking beer.

I don't know if something was wrong with her or something was wrong with me I killed her not long after that by strangling her with my bare hands” He then says that he undressed the corpse and had sex with it.

He said that he vividly Remembered dragging her over the guardrail because she weighed quite a lot and he skinned his knee whilst he was doing it Now this sounds quite likely until you actually hear the full story of Henry Lee Lucas Now he is first put in prison for murdering his own mother Viola Lucas They were having a fight as to whether he should return home or not to care for her And so he just stabs her in the neck and murders her.

He was sentenced to 20 to 40 years in prison in Michigan But after 10 years there was too much prison overcrowding and so they let him out He was let out in 1970 and in 1971 He is convicted of trying to kidnap three schoolgirls.

He goes to prison again for another four years before being released in 1975 and this is where he befriends Otis Toole who would later go on to become his partner in crime He moves in with Otis and his parents and whilst he's moved in with Otis He strikes up a close friendship with Otis's niece this was 15 year old Frieda Powell or she was known as Becky to most people and Eventually Lucas manages to persuade Becky to run away with him.

And so they go to the other side of the country They first go to California and then they end up in Texas when they're working for an 82 year old woman named Kate Rich And eventually, of course he ends up murdering both of them.

He said that Becky was too young too Whiny and so he murdered her he also murders Kate Rich.

Eventually the police capture him and he does confess to them He even leads the police to where the bodies were even though the bodies were unidentifiable because they were so so decomposed It's sort of good enough.

He led them up to two bodies.

But this is kinda where “Orange Socks” comes in.

You see Henry Lee Lucas Loved to confess to murders.

In his time he confessed to anywhere between 600 and 3, 000 different murders and there is no way that he committed all of these murders the amount of different places he'd have to have been at once to be Able to do all of the ones he confessed to it just wouldn't work, but he enjoyed messing with the police He liked leading them on goose chase, but also meant that he would get preferential treatment in prison The police would literally take him out for meals at restaurants and take him to cafes They would let him wander around without handcuffs on he knew all of the numbers for the security doors He had pretty much Complete freedom or as much freedom as one could have when they're in prison and not only this but police stations across the country started to hear about Lucas Confessing to anything and everything and so they started to contact him getting him to confess to any open crimes they had on their books It was easy for them they could close off some open cases and Lucas enjoyed confessing.

If he confessed to a crime it was fair game and this way the police across the country actually managed to close up 213 cases Kind of a little bit unethical if you ask me.

The “Lucas task force” was established to try and filter through all of these Confessions and figure out which ones are correct, which ones aren't Honestly, I couldn't get an exact number as to how many we managed to confirm I think it was around 28 that they were like: “Yeah He 100% did these” but it may have been slightly more than that.

Lucas would later recant Most of his confessions even going as far at one point as to say that the only person he ever murdered Was his own mother.

It was too late at this point He was too far gone and the police loved to use him to close all of their cases They would actually take him into the interview room and let him look through the case files Before turning on the recorder and then they would let him basically repeat back exactly What was said in the case files and then it was really hard to say that he was lying about anything because he knew details Only the police knew and the tapes would also be stopped and started again constantly Almost as if the police were pausing it to tell him what to say next.

And this may be what happened with “Orange Socks” It's actually quite likely that this is what's happened with “Orange Socks”.

Like I said earlier He fully confessed to it saying he remember dragging, her over the guardrail he said exactly where he left her Details only the police knew but the police probably fed him those details He actually later recanted the confession, of course And there was actually zero physical evidence to match up Lucas with the crime There was no evidence in the sexual assault There was literally nothing there.

“Orange Socks” is actually one of murders that Henry Lee Lucas ends up going to trial for But the defense had a good argument.

They said that throughout his confession.

He was unsure.

He kept contradicting himself and Nothing really made that much sense he said that he was even shown photos of the crime scene before he did the confession and that's how he knew exactly how the Body would have got there going over the guardrail dragged through the grass and he knew exactly Where her body was left.

And most shockingly news actually living in Florida at the time and there was a work timesheet from Florida that showed that at the time of “Orange Socks'” murder or around the time He most likely would have been at work.

For him to maybe make it work He would have to drive from Florida to Oklahoma to pick up “Orange Socks”, drive down to Texas Going 70 miles per hour the entire time not stopping once at all Even though he said that he did stop with her at a truck stop And then he'd have to drive 70 miles per hour the entire way back to make it back in time for his next shift Although it's possible, it's highly unlikely.

Somehow though out of the 11 murder convictions that he received This is the only one he got given the death penalty for You've kind of got to question the justice system there when there's so much evidence to suggest that he didn't do it He still gets given the death penalty.

I think they wanted to make a kind of example out of him however The state senator at the time was actually George Bush and George Bush managed to get this overturned because there just wasn't enough evidence so it got changed from the death penalty to Just another life imprisonment.

So he may or may not have committed “Orange Socks'” murder.

He did recant his confession He said he didn't do it, but he may well have done Like I said, he liked to lead the police on a wild goose chase So who knows.

Over the years there have been plenty of possible matches for “Orange Socks” But not a single one of them has come back positive as of yet.

On the 37th anniversary of her death So in 2016, they actually did a new facial reconstruction of her which is pretty detailed so I'm gonna put that on the screen now.

This was done by the National Center of exploited and missing children, even though she Seemed to be a bit older.

She may have been as young as 15 and she was also entered into their database So if any DNA comes up it may strike a match with her in their system.

As of this year the Doe Project have officially taken on her case and leaps have been made towards her identification.

As of just the end of September this year, so 2018 It was announced that there was new DNA evidence in this case Preliminary forensic evidence here shows the woman's DNA as well as somebody else's DNA and they haven't really given us much more information About this they don't even know as of yet if the DNA is enough to test on but this is huge Not only could this lead to the capture of her murderer potentially, but it also could lead to her identification Finally after like nearly 40 years now.

As of the time I film this 31st of October 2018.

I have no more information But I have a feeling that more will come out very soon So if you're watching this in a few months, maybe give it a Google and see what you can find.

Now let's move on and talk about our second Jane Doe here.

This is the Walker County Jane Doe She was found just one year later on the 1st of November 1980 in Huntsville, Texas Which is about two and a half hours drive away from Georgetown.

This Jane Doe was found approximately about six hours after her death She was found around 9:00 a.

m.

Meaning that she may have died from about 3 a.

m She was found face down on the side of Interstate 45 and just like “Orange Socks” She was also naked.

A pair of red leather Sandals were found near the scene which are assumed to belong to her and she was also found wearing a necklace.

A brown pendant With some kind of stone in and a gold chain This is a little thing that makes investigators think “Orange Socks” and “Walker County” are Connected because both were left with jewelry a lot of people would steal jewelry Especially something like a gold chain and a silver ring with quite a precious stone in it Most people would steal them but whoever killed these two women didn't.

This Jane Doe was between five foot and five foot five And she was very petite.

She was about 105 to 115 pounds and she was young She was anywhere between 14 and 20 years old It's most likely that she was towards the younger end of this because she looked really really young She had brown hair once again with kind of reddish tint to it and I was cut in a quite fashionable winged style She had hazel eyes but not many distinctive features apart from a scar above her right eyebrow.

Her ears were pierced Although she is wearing no earrings and her fingernails were long, but she didn't have any nail varnish on them But she did have her toenails painted pink she was very well nourished very well cared for her body was an excellent condition and She has really good dental care throughout her entire life.

So investigators believe that she came from a more middle-class family She definitely had money.

Considering the fact that she likely had money and was very young and so likely came from a family with parents It's very very strange that she's never been identified.

Surely There's parents out there looking for a daughter and it's not like she was neglected She was so well nourished and in really really good condition But her body had been treated a lot more brutally than “Orange Socks” This Jane Doe had been strangled just like “Orange Socks”, but not with somebody's hands.

She'd been strangled with a ligature Most likely her own pantyhose and the rest of her body was covered in bruises as well She'd been sexually assaulted with some kind of blunt object, but hadn't been raped and therefore there was no DNA evidence There.

When she was found her pantyhose and her underwear were actually stuffed inside her vagina Most likely to stop all of the bleeding that was coming from her being assaulted with some kind of blunt object It was really violent.

Before her death she was beaten extensively Like I said, her entire body was covered in bruises But most notably her lip was really swollen as well as her right eye And she had a really deep bite mark in the back of her right shoulder as well It's suspected that the murderer whoever did this had definitely done this before.

This was some kind of professional murder Whoever done this knew what they liked and knew what they were doing But unlike “Orange Socks” Multiple people had seen this girl in the days before she died and this is most likely because she seemed so young she seemed too Young to be out on her own wandering around so people paid attention Everyone who saw her said that she was wearing some kind of dirty yellow pullover as well as a white knitted jumper with really deep long pockets She was also wearing jeans and she wasn't wearing shoes But she was carrying them in her hand a pair of red leather sandals.

This girl arrives at a gas station around 6:30 p.

m on October 31st 1990 and she exits a blue Chevrolet Caprice.

Now I actually I don't know if the girl was driving the car herself or somebody else was I'm going to go ahead and assume that somebody else was driving the car But I couldn't actually find that piece of information anywhere to confirm it.

If she did get out this car That means that somebody out there knows who she is or at least gave her a lift somewhere and has never come forward She goes into the gas station and asked the attendant for directions to Ellis Prison farm And then she actually leaves towards it walking on foot it was as she was walking towards prison that she's also seen by two different men at a trucker stop that she goes into the Stop into the cafe and starts talking to a waitress and they're actually talking for quite a while She says that she's visiting a friend in the prison and again asked for directions And so the waitress draws her a map and they're talking for a while and the waitress actually notices that she's probably too young to be out on her own.

The waitress said that she suspected this girl was a runaway and so Questions her about it ask her if her parents aren't worried about where she is and she just replies with “who cares”.

The waitress said that the girl actually Mentioned that she was from either Aransas Pass or Rockport in Texas the police worked really really hard to identify this girl as I do with all Jane Doe's but this girl was Particularly young and therefore they thought that her parents must be out there somewhere looking for her they went to the prison that Jane Doe was walking towards and asked all the inmates if anybody recognized her and Nobody did even though she said she was going there to visit a friend They also went both to Aransas Pass and Rockport and sort of showed her photo around asking anybody if they recognize her Still nobody came forward.

They even went into schools and asked schools if they were missing any students? Are there students that would have recognized her Again, no one did.

The police are pretty sure that she was of school age.

When the waitress asked her how old she was She said 19, but you know when something's quite an obvious lie The waitress knew that she was significantly younger than that.

On January 16th 1981 she's buried at Oakwood Cemetery in Huntsville.

Her gravestone reads Unknown White Female It was also widely suspected as you can probably guess that Walker County Jane Doe was also murdered by Henry Lee Lucas He was still very much active at this time in the middle of his murder spree But Jane Doe actually had one very distinguishing feature And that was the bite mark on her shoulder and the bite mark couldn't be matched to Lucas's dental records However, before he went into prison, he did have pretty significant dental work done.

And so his previous bite pattern I suppose that's what you call it would be different from his one when he was in prison Like I mentioned before it's commonly thought that whoever murdered Walker County Jane Doe Had done this before they were experienced and they likely were some kind of serial killer.

Just in 1980 I think 1979 alone four other women were also found along the same Interstate and they will had very very similar injuries.

In 1999 this Jane Doe was exhumed to get more information about her height and weight and they also took a DNA sample They are really really determined to get this particular case solved and find out her name and over the years lots and lots different facial Reconstructions have been created of this Jane Doe However, there's a huge lack of photos taken of her postmortem and so it is pretty difficult to create these reconstructions.

In 2015 again a photo surfaced of a young girl again who people think is Most likely the Walker County Jane Doe.

A brother and sister were looking through old photos of time They spent at a motel in Texas and in the background of some of these photos was this girl the girl who is called either Kathy or Kathleen or Kate or something along those lines.

They said that she was staying in the motel with two adults They don't know if it was her parents or just two carers and she was talking about how she was going to visit a friend In prison.

Now the prison she actually talked about was a different prison called Sugar Land But it could, there's a lot of things here that could link her.

Of course this girl Kathy, Kathleen could have absolutely nothing to do with Walker County Jane Doe but they're begging for anybody who has any information about this girl to come forward of course again As with “Orange Socks” loads and loads of people have been excluded from being the Walker County Jane Doe over the years These kinds of Jane Doe cases are among the most heartbreaking ones to cover because not only do they lose their identity But they're brutally murdered as well.

They're given no dignity even in death.

Coming from a very privileged background myself Well, I know that if I ever went missing people would find me and they would search for me I find it really hard to believe and heartbreaking that nobody comes forward to identify these girls Everyone has relatives somewhere or they have friends back in a hometown everyone knows someone And it's just baffling to me that people can just go missing and nobody ever goes out to find them.

Then again There are a lot of Jane Doe cases where the families are searching and searching for years and the police are searching for These victims' identities and the two just never cross over This is usually due to state lines or different laws different communications and they just get missed “Orange Socks” is thought to have been struggling financially She was a drifter or hitchhiker and she was most likely towards her late 30s Walker County Jane Doe was a lot younger.

She was likely from a privileged background and she was probably a runaway Searching for a friend in prison.

I do wonder how far investigators can go in searching for the families of these people I do wonder if they can do something similar to what they did with the Golden State killer and run DNA through an ancestry database And strike a match with a distant relative I know people do have some ethical questions when it comes to things like that But I do think when it comes to reuniting Jane and John Does with their identities This could be a really good cause.

If you know any information about either of these Jane Does, I doubt anybody will do, but if you do, if you're from Oklahoma or, Texas I will leave contact information down below who to contact if you may know something Yeah, thank you so much for watching and I will see you in tomorrow's video.

Bye guys.

Learn to Knit Magic Loop Socks – Part 1

this is the magic loop sock knitting lesson it's a series of videos that will get you through magic loops socketing which is a way of knitting socks with long circular needle instead of double pointed needles and we are using a simple worsted weight sock pattern for this the pattern is available for purchase and download at verypink.

com or you can use these videos to get you through the trickier parts of magic loop sock knitting the tongue twister for any pattern but this pattern is available at verypink.

com ok to get started first one explain to you what we're going to do here and how this is going to look for double pointed needles we can knit a small circumference like a sock cuff or the of course the whole sock because we have this little triangle that we're working on and the the three or more needles allows us to do that but we're not talking about double pointed needles right now instead of having things on two needles we're going to use this long circular to have the sock split up in half in two segments with cords sticking out one side and the needles sticking out the other and that will allow us to knit a tiny tube like this and it actually is kind of less fussing around because with double pointed needles you're switching back and forth from three needles and always readjusting and with Magic Loop three or more needles of course with Magic Loop knitting you have half your stitches on one side and half on the other which is kind of less fiddling around okay so we're going to start with a cast on and cast on the number of stitches that your pattern says and we're going to go ahead and speed up through this long tail cast on okay we've finished our cast on and to get started with Magic Loop first thing you want to do is to slide those stitches out to the cord and then find find the spot that marks the halfway point so half the stitches are on one side half are on the other fold that and pull the cord through like this okay scoot that back onto your your needles so that you can see if everything is straightened out just like with double pointed needles we want to be careful with this part to make sure that nothing is twisted to get started with this I want you to flip it around so that the working yarn is in is on what we have as the back needle right now okay nothing's twisted scoot everything to the tips of the needle so what's going to happen here you're going to use this working yarn to knit this stitch first and that's going to close up the loop and the way to get that needle around to make it happen is to pull the back needle long with a lot of cords sticking out and now I'm going to scoot these close to the tip and work this first stitch and in this pattern we're starting with 2×2 rib so I'm going to knit two purl two all the way across and the cast on row of course is always the toughest to work and we're trying to keep things from getting twisted so the first part of the Magic Loop socks are the fiddly Esparta the whole sock okay you should end with purl two and then we move on to the next needle okay we worked all the way across that now I'm going to flip it around and have the working yarn in the back needle again and pull the cord down so that my needles are lined up again oh and I wish I had done a looser cast on this would have been easier to slide okay again my working yarns back here my needles are lined up this is going to be my first stitch opposite the working yarn so I pull this needle long and work the next needle and one trick I want to show you is this first stitch that you're knitting on each needle remember you're working from the cord over here and that stitch can be pulled really tightly you want to watch the tension on the first stitch because this isn't on a needle it's on the cord so wrap it and pull it through watching your tension kind of eyeballing it for make it as tight as if there was a needle there kind of a thing okay that is the cast on and you're going to work the cuff for in this pattern you're going to work the cuff for two inches and then knit three rounds plane and we will be ready to start the heel flap Oh.

Knitting Help – Correcting Gaps in Socks

[music] in this video, i'm going to show you how toprevent, or really repair gaps in socks.

and if you know what i'm talking about, youcan picture it in your head.

if you have never knit socks before or youhaven't experienced this, this is something that happens whether you're knitting cuffdown or toe up socks.

right where the heel meets the rest of thesock, you can end up with a gap right there, a hole in the sock.

and i get questions from people all the timeabout how to prevent that and how to repair it.

and the reason that it happens is, if youtake the heel away, you have a tube sock.

right? so you have to put the knitting on hold toknit the heel, and when you go back to knitting in the round again, that is a strain point.

and a place where you can have an extra spaceor a gap the strain or the extra space is what can create the gap or both.

so again, it's toe up, cuff down, whateverthe style of sock you're knitting, it can happen.

it can also happen, it's less likely to happen, but it can also happen at the end of a toe on toe up socks.

but the way to fix it is the same, regardless.

so i'm going to show you how to do that.

this is my actual sock that i am knittingright now.

this is my project.

and i've just finished knitting the heel.

and i'm ready to go back and incorporate thestitches and knit in the round.

this is a really fine gauge, and the spacefrom here to here is really significant.

if i just knit that first stitch without fixingthis, there will likely be a hole in my socks right there.

so this is something you can do, i prettymuch do it every time wtihout even looking because it's just kind of a safety measure.

you want to put your needle in somewhere, under at least two legs.

wrap it and pull it through, and then takea close up look.

if it's stretching like crazy, you want todrop that stitch and try it somewhere else.

or if it looks pretty good, you can leaveit.

it did look good, i want to leave it.

but i dropped it to show you you could dropit! [laughs] that looks really good.

i've picked up a stitch there, i can justwork across my stitches now, wtih that extra stitch.

and if it's a really bad gap, you can considerpicking up a couple of stitches.

i don't know that i've ever had to do that, but i can imagine if you're using a bulky yarn, where it might be necessary.

this little red marker has nothing to do withwhat i'm showing you now! i always mark the sock after i finish theheel so i can count the cuff stitches.

and make another sock to match.

okay, i just want to get to the other sideto show you, do the same thing again.

i look at the space between my working yarnand my next stitch.

pretty significant, so i'll pick up and knitan extra stitch in that space.

this one is kind of way over to the side here, that's fine, everthing else looks too loosey goosey to support a stitch.

but this will still serve to fill that gap.

you'll be surprised.

okay, you don't have to watch me knit therest of the sock.

i can just explain to you what happens next.

after you finish that round, you'll find thatyou've picked up two stitches, you have two extra stitches.

just in the same spot where you picked thoseup, decrease them back out on the next round.

it doesn't really matter what decrease youuse, i always just use knit two together.

it's not going to show anyway, because youhave the line from the wrap and turns on teh sock or the gusset stitches either or.

an extra decrease there isn't going to mattermuch.

so just knit two together on the next roundto get your stitch count back where it was before, and then you're good.

you can use this on ever pair of socks youknit forever, and you won't have any more gaps in your socks.

well, i hope so! good luck! [whooshing sounds] [music].

Casting on the Rainbow Sock using the German Twisted Cast on

Hi, it's Chantelle from Fiberific! Welcome back.

It's been a really long time since our last Tuesday tutorial.

I had the Bendigo Sheep and Wool show and then got sick so it's kind of pushed our schedule just a little behind so I really appreciate you bearing with me and hanging in there until we got going again So this week, we're going to start our beautiful rainbow socks by Michaela Richter.

The first thing I really want to do is to thank Michaela for allowing us to use her pattern.

We're going to be going step-by-step through the pattern doing things exactly how Michaela has recommended.

If you want to do it a different way you go right ahead these are your socks.

You can do what you want.

We are not the knitting police here.

Now in fairness, I should say I am not the best at knitting socks.

I would not describe myself as an avid sock knitter.

I enjoy knitting socks, but I really really end up with a lot of single socks I have I get a lot of single sock syndrome And so for those of you that don't know it's where you finish one sock and then never cast on the next one So I have lots of odd socks floating around the house But in saying that this time round I am so thrilled.

This colour changing made it so addictive to just finish one more color just one more color I'll just do the gray and then I'll do one more color and then one more color and The next thing you know it's like ooh, heel turn and so the actual creation of this sock It makes life a lot more exciting.

Ok so the first thing that we're going to do So I printed out the pattern.

I know in this day and age lots of people like to have You know, it on their tablets or on their computers or whatever.

I like that as well But I really like a piece of paper.

I like to scratch all over it.

I like to grab a pencil and just write all over it and really make it clear exactly where I'm up to and I know you can do that with your tablets and And if you've got knit companion and things like that, it's really helpful, but I just personally like the piece of paper I fold it up.

I shove it in my bag, ends up with creases.

It's a mess, but I really I prefer to have a piece of paper.

What do we need to make these gorgeous socks? So I put together a sock kit for those of you that wanted it.

It came in this little box.

Inside of it, it looks like this.

So you have your 50 grams of main color and then you have 14 rainbow colours.

Now also in the kit I added these little packets of stitch markers.

There is round circular markers with one, two, three and four and a couple of blinglets and I found that they were all I needed to make this particular pattern so hopefully you won't need anything else it depends on how you're going to do it Now the pattern itself is written to use double pointed needles and I am seriously not friends with double pointed needles.

They don't like me.

I lose them.

I sit on them I break them.

I do all sorts of evil things to double pointed needles so I'm going to be using the ChiaoGoo nine inch circulars You can't see it there, but you can see it there sort of.

Hello reflective bits.

the ChiaoGoo nine-inch circulars Personally I'm a loose Knitter, so I'm going with the 2.

25 millimetres If you're a tighter knitter, I'd recommend a two and a half.

This 4 ply yarn for the kit really does lend itself well to those sizes Now if you're using your own yarn or.

.

.

or a different yarn or a handspun yarn make sure you're using a needle size suited to the yarn you can always adjust your stitches But if it's too hard it won't stretch, so you want to make sure you're getting a nice elastic fabric Because otherwise you will not be able to get them on your feet and at the end of the day, that's what we want.

We've got our yarn.

We've got our needles.

We've got our stitch markers.

Let's get knitting Okay, so we've got our pattern.

The first thing we need to do is cast on.

It is truly going to depend on your yarn, on your needle size and on your foot and ankle size as to how many stitches you cast on.

On page four of the pattern it has got some information on stitch numbers for the different sizes But I will link some more information in down below to help you decide how many stitches you need to cast on.

Now I've used this sock yarn a lot and I also have I've really thick ankles I can't deny it I'm a big girl with big legs So I tend to cast on 72 stitches then decrease down to 64 because while my ankles are big the rest of my foot is a normal size 7 its a little bit wide but it's the stretch of the fabric is enough.

The cast on recommended is a german twisted cast on so let's get started Okay So we're going to be doing a german twisted cast on.

We've got our ball of yarn at the back With the tail to the back.

Oh, sorry ball of yarn to the back With our yarn leading to that and then our tail is off to the left at the front.

I'm a continental knitter so I like to have my yarn on the left Okay, so we're going to be coming in with our fingers and thumbs Coming in and scooping them up like that And then just grabbing the tails.

Now you want to make sure you've got a decent grip on it You don't want it too loose, and then what we do is We bring our needle in up and under both and then back over one then scoop around and draw that through the little cross mark You move your thumb.

You pull the tail.

You make it snug.

But not tight because this is supposed to be our stretchy bind-off cast on so I'll do it again So you have you come up under both over one Bring it around scoop that one up and Grab it, pull your thumb out pull on the tail Okay now for me, I'm going to need 72 of these stitches so I'm obviously not going to record me doing all of them Up and over one.

I do find moving my hand helps.

so under both, over one, bring it around scoop it up, drop the thumb, pull it and just keep going until you've got your desired number of stitches.

For me, that'll be 72 We'll catch up together once we've gotten to our right number of stitches.

One thing I cannot specify is the length of the piece of yarn you're going to need to cast on with.

The reason for this is everyone's going to be using different yarn, different needle sizes with different tensions and different gauges Now personally I would rather end up with a one metre long tail then have to keep redoing it over and over and over again.

So I tend to leave myself for my 72 stitches on a 2.

25 millimetre needle I tend to leave about a meter of yarn as my tail for this cast on I know it seems like a lot, but as I said I'd rather have a lot left over than have to keep redoing it Let's get on with the cast on okay.

So we've got our 72 Stitches.

Now we need to join these together but we need to be very very careful that we do not twist these.

So make sure that all your little bottoms are facing into the middle.

If you've got anything twisted around make sure make sure that it is all the right way now make sure you tails are on the right hand side as well And just make sure you know which is the actual tail and don't knit with it because, you know, there's a good chance I'm going to Okay, so if you've got the kit, you will have these stitch markers, okay? Which are the one two three fours.

Now as I said before, the pattern's been written for double pointed needles so at some stage throughout the next 20 rounds of the rib pattern you need to add these stitch markers in Okay, so put number 1 here, right at the start so that you've got your marker for your beginning of the round so use your number one for that, because that is the beginning of your round just right there Now the other thing to remember is these nine inch circulars are just a little tricky when you're first casting on so I'm going to actually leave that off and just use the tail stitch marker for a little while because I do have a massive tail it's about 30 centimetres.

I'll trim that down a bit later In the meantime, it's fine.

It's not going to do any harm so you just need to stretch your stitches around a little bit so that you've got some right up to the point and again making sure you haven't twisted any, okay? So as I said before these first couple of rounds of your knit two purl two for your sock cuff is going to be a little fiddly on these nine-inch circulars but if you persevere it'll get a lot easier really fast, okay So knit two purl two making sure you're not knitting with the tail that's more for me than you obviously because I'm stupid and I continuously do it okay, so knit two i have made my cast on just, it's probably a smidge too tight and I'm bumping the camera, so sorry about that.

Knit one.

Then I've got to knit a second one then purl two you need to knit two purl two all the way around So what I do tend to do is I'll do the four stitches of the repeat, knit two, purl two and then I'll do a big shuffle of the stitches around Just for these first couple of rows so what I've done? Knit one then knit two purl one purl two then a big shuffle of the stitches.

Shuffle shuffle shuffle all the way around And I'll keep doing that all the way to the end okay, so I've gotten to the end of the first round here I'll just move this tail out of the way I really should trim that now that I've put my stitch marker in I'll get some scissors and do that shortly Now, I'm not sure if you, like, if you notice here, I popped the stitch marker in and did an extra couple of stitches Look, I am Queen of losing my stitch markers so I do tend to work to an extra stitch or two on either side of the stitch markers and consider that the end of my sort of knitting so that I can put it down So obviously you don't have to do this But there's just something, a little trick that I prefer to do and as everyone here knows There's no knitting police at Fiberific.

there are eleven thousand ways to do things if you don't like this cast on Try another stretchy cast on.

But you just need to make sure it is a stretchy cast on because it is for the top of a sock.

You don't want it to cut the circulation of your foot off.

The actual circumference has gotten a lot easier even with just one row so the next rounds of the knit two purl two ribbing are going to be considerably easier than this first round if you have persevered through the first round on your nine-inch circulars You will do a dance on the second round then third round and fourth rounds You would be like I don't even know what I was complaining about So what we're going to do now is we have, the pattern calls for 20 rows of knit two purl two We've got our first row done of our knit two purl two.

We've got our stitch marker placed I'll knit, in my next round of knitting I'll go through and place my stitch markers every 18 stitches the pattern will tell you how many so but basically divide by four and make sure you pop your stitch markers in, in their number order it will help you further down the track We are going to be referring to the numbers as this pattern was initially written for double pointed needles she does describe needle one needle two needle three and needle four so I want to try and make this as easy as possible for us those of us that have these stitch markers if you don't have one two and three four make sure that you've got stitch markers that in your brain you can differentiate between and remember which one is the start of the round at least? So if you've got lots of similar stitch markers try something a bit different for your first marker and then you can count them off and it'll make life a bit easier So I will see you next week for our jogless striping and our wonderful joins That we have for all our colors Happy Knitting It's time to you to fill your universe with fiber fun.

Off you go I'll see you next week for the next section of the sock bye.

How Sock Start-Up Bombas Brings In $100 Million A Year

We started this company fiveand a half years ago.

You know we hada goal of donating a million pairsof socks.

And this year we'regonna donate our 25 millionth pair.

I'm David Heat, I'mthe co-founder and CEO of Bombas.

I'm Randy Goldberg I'mthe co-founder and Chief Brand Officerat Bombas.

David and Randy metwhile working at a startup.

One day, Davidsaw a quote on Facebook, “Socks are thenumber one most requested item inhomeless shelters.

” A light bulb went off.

In 2013, they launchedBombas — a sock company that donates onepair of socks for every pair sold.

The name Bombas comes fromthe Latin word for a bumblebee.

Bees arealtruistic animals.

They live in a hive.

They work together tomake their world a better place.

So we took alot of inspiration from that and it's sortof infused in everything that we do in ourculture, in the socks that we design, in theT-shirts that we design.

It's really everywherein Bombas.

The team was inspiredby companies like TOMS and Warby Parker whowork with a similar model.

We didn't grow up dreamingof starting a sock company.

I'm not sureanybody ever has, but we got obsessed with socksand we looked at every pair of socksin the market.

We realized that whatmost people were wearing just weren'tthat comfortable.

And there were ideasand features that we started to notice thatwe could improve upon.

We started getting hundredsand hundreds of samples in and we'd alwayskind of stuff our our gym bags with socksand we'd go to the gym and randomly go upto people and be like, “Hey I knowthis sounds really strange but can you try apair of our socks?” Those same people would alwayscome back a few days later and belike, “You know those socks you gave me.

? They're really reallygood.

How do I get some?” The team decided tolaunch on Indiegogo with a goal of $15, 000over a 30-day period.

Within the first24 hours, we did over $25, 000 in salesand then over that 30-day period, wegrossed just under $150, 000 worthof sales.

So what makes thesesocks so extraordinary? It starts with reallygreat materials — amazing high-qualitylong-staple cotton, really well made merinowool, and then from there we, think about thetoe seem, the arch support.

We have whatwe call a honeycomb arch support.

It really makes like agood hug around your mid-foot.

People lovethat feature.

We use a differentstitching technique on the heels so the heelcup grips your foot.

We tested tension levelsin our calf socks so they stay up anddon't slide down, but don't leave marks on yourleg so it's really about thoughtful designand a consumer-focused approach to howwe build a product intoday's world.

The socks arekind of pricey.

A 12-pack of women'sankle socks goes for $144.

And some of thesocks cost $18 a pair.

Why are people willingto pay that much? Before Starbucksyou bought coffee from Maxwell House and hadit at home or bought coffee at acorner deli for $0.

75 and what they didwas improved the quality so much and improvethe experience around coffee, that they werebringing the price up to 3x what you usedto spend so if it's $0.

75 at a cornerdeli and it's $2.

25 at Starbucks, you're willingto pay extra for a better experience, for a better product, and it's thesame thing with our socks.

And people love them.

They are softand cushy.

They stay in placeall day long.

The arch support helpsyour feet feel good even when you're runningand gunning all day or working out.

I didn't expect to lovethem like I do.

It's a no-brainerfor me.

I get comfy socks andthen someone in need gets supercomfy socks.

The mission portion ofour business has almost driven the businesspart of our business.

Besides making great socksBombas wants to be the best placeto work.

This is a self-selectinggroup of people, right? People who comeand work at Bombas want to make animpact in the communities where we allwork and live.

Bombas employees do theirfair share of giving back.

One key thing that we doas a team is that we volunteer our time.

We're not justdonating socks, we're donating hours and we'redonating parts of our lives during the workweek to go and connect with theshelters and organizations that we support throughour sock donations.

So, we're handing outsocks, we're serving food, we're walking aroundon the streets, we're meeting people whoare really invested in improving the community andwe want to be very closely connected tothat so that we understand why we're allhere and why we're doing what wedo.

Coming into this organization, wehad set a goal really, really early on tobe the best place to work forany employee.

Like many startups, Bombas offers unlimited vacation and free meals afew times a week.

They also leave the officetwice a year for a company retreat.

So what's nextfor Bombas? Socks will always be theheart of what we do, but we're releasingnew products this year starting with T-shirtswhich is really exciting.

In the sameway that we developed socks over two years tofind and make the most thoughtful version ofa product that we all know already, we'vedone the same thing with T-shirts.

So the T-shirt is asuper thoughtful product made Peruvian Pima cotton, has a cool hand feel, kind of like theother side of the pillow.

It's designed tofeel like your favorite T-shirt fromday one.

So the first T-shirtyou're gonna want to wear out ofthe wash every time.

I mean, somethingthat we say sometimes is “It'sjust socks.

” But when we saythat, what we're really saying is, “Well, it'sjust socks but look at what socks can do.

” You hand somebodya pair of socks who's having a hardday and it starts a conversation and that'sa moment of dignity.

And then all of asudden you have a little bit more compassion, alittle bit more understanding, and youhelp somebody out.

DIY Dog Plushie!! EASY Puppy Sock Plush Tutorial! Fun Budget Crafts

Hi guys, and welcome back to Maqaroon I realized that for some reason I've always uploaded plushie videos on Christmas day So I thought this would be a nice tradition to keep 2018 is going to be the Chinese year of the dog So I decided to make this cute

puppy plush loosely based on the emoji If you're new here, then a big welcome and please subscribe to both of my channels And be sure to check out my plushie playlist Which has tons of tutorials for other animals To get started, you'll need some fluffy socks These two

colors actually came in the same set from H&M So, if there's a shop close to you, then you might still be able to get the same ones First, take the white sock Turn it inside out and then press the heel part flat just like this Then grab a

pen and draw a curve slightly above the heel I'll be using black thread in this video because you can see it better on camera However, you should always use the same color thread that matches the sock Begin by back stitching along the line If you've never made sock

plushies before, then I strongly recommend watching this video here Which explains all of the stitches in detail A back stitch is where your stitches overlap each other slightly and this helps it join the fabric together much more strongly Now, cut out your sock just above the curve Turn

the sock the right way around and grab a large handful of stuffing You'd be amazed at how much can fit inside these socks So, make sure you use as much as i'm doing here Start by putting the first ball inside to create the head And then use a

slightly larger ball of stuffing to create the body Once you're happy with the shape, trim the fabric if needed and sew a running stitch all around the edge This is the easiest type of stitch and if you tug on the thread Then you should pull the opening closed

just like a drawstring bag Then, sew another circle across these tiny folds And pull the thread so that everything is sealed completely And lastly, just criss-cross the thread several times and tie a knot to make sure everything is secured in place A good trick for hiding the thread

is to exit somewhere else in the plushie And then cut the thread close to the fabric so it simply disappears into the stuffing Next, take your other sock and draw two avocado shapes like this These are going to be the ears Back stitch along the outline But make

sure you leave a tiny gap at the top Then cut out both pieces and flip them around There's no need to stuff these since the sock fabric is already so thick and fluffy Simply attach these onto the body using a ladder stitch This is where you alternate one

stitch on the head and one stitch on the ear Once again, if you find the sewing techniques confusing Then please watch this video here where everything is explained step by step in detail I'm going to be using beads for eyes But you can also use buttons or simply

glue-on circles of black felt If you decide to use small beads like this Then it's important to attach the eyes using ONE piece of thread This can be slightly fiddly since you have to push the needle back and forth all the time However, this really helps you achieve

a professional result Both of your eyes should look symmetrical and be slightly indented into the plush Afterwards, you can exit the thread under the ear Which helps to hide any loose ends To make the nose,i'm simply cutting out a piece of brown felt and sticking this on using

craft glue Then, I'm using some thick embroidery thread to create the mouth This step is probably the most difficult part of this DIY So if you have any problems with it, then you could simply make the whole mouth using fabric felt instead That method is shown in more

detail in this Pusheen plush video Now take the remaining piece of sock and draw a curve next to the heel Back stitch along the line making sure to leave a small opening at the top Then cut this out and turn everything back to front Once again, there's no

need to stuff anything since the sock fabric is already so fluffy Just attach it to the body and your tail is done Lastly, cut out two circles from the left-over fabric These should be about 5 centimeters or 2 inches in diameter Sew a running stitch along the edge

and then add a tiny piece of stuffing to the center Now, gently pull the thread shut while pushing the stuffing inside with your other hand And you should be able to get a perfect ball like this Make several stitches across the top to hold the opening closed And

then attach this to the body Then, simply repeat the process to make the other foot And now, your puppy sock plush is done I realized that this ended up looking a lot like a bunny So, what do you think? Leave a comment down belong with the emoji that

you think best fits this plush I hope all of you are having a well deserved break And i'm honored that we got to spend a few minutes of the holidays together! You can also follow me on Instagram To see what I'm doing right now on Christmas day This

is Joanna Thank you so much for watching and i'll see you in my next video Bye!

Are Summer Liner Socks Better Than Mens Dress Socks?

Hi guys, I'm Vegard and in todays video you're going to learn about the four main types of classic socks that we have, – how to always pick the right colour of socks for your outfit – and the rule for matching the correct sock type with your shoe type.

There's basically four types of classic socks: – the first type out is the liner sock, or invisible sock as some call it.

– next we have tube socks, which are also called tennis socks.

– we have the quite unusual over the calf socks.

– and the last type is off course the very common dress sock.

In this video we're going to start with liner socks.

These are basically socks that you'd wear inside low build shoes like loafers, sneakers or boat shoes.

These socks are for a number of reasons a good alternative to going sockless, – which is a renowned casual look.

First: the fabric in these socks helps prevent chafing blisters – which is a common problem in shoes that rub against your heels or toes.

Second: the fabric also helps your feet breathe on warm summer days – and thus preventing foot odour to some degree.

These socks are also great for men who are self conscious about their toes, – because they will cover your toe and heel, if you have to take your shoes of in front of others during the day.

These socks by the way, they are considered super casual – and that's because showing bare leg on any sort of formal occasion is considered inappropriate.

That's why you wear liner socks only on occasions – where it's appropriate to wear shorts, or summer pants.

These socks are great.

I love them because they're dirt cheap, – they are comfortable and unlike many ankle socks, – they don't slid down under your heel when you're exercising.

Tube socks are, if possible, even more casual than liner socks – and that's mainly because it's a sports garment.

As we know, sports garments should only be worn to the gym, or when we're wearing trainers, – but we're going to talk more about that later in this video.

A good pair of tube socks should have a wide elastic band, – they should also be fairly long, as most of them are one size fits all.

In addition to that, they should have a thick high-grade cotton fabric, – which will provide for some shock absorption when active.

The third type of classic socks are called over the calf socks, – mainly because that's what they do, they do go over the calf.

I believe that these socks are developed for super formal occasions, – where showing your legs are way inappropriate.

The reason for this is that even when your sitting down and your pants slide up, they will cover you leg.

These over the calf socks are bought solely for this video – and that's because I avoid this dilemma all together by wearing shirt stays – that clasps on to my shirt and socks.

Thereby my legs are kept out of sight, all through the day, no matter what.

If you, by the way, would like to learn more about shirt stays like the ones I'm wearing, – you can check out my shirt stays tutorial by clicking the link on screen, – or down below this video now! The last of the four types of classic socks are these and they are dress socks.

Dress socks are socks I basically use every day, with all kinds of casual and formal pants.

Dress socks, like most other socks, typically come in both plain weave and ribbed weave.

Personally I prefer plain weave dress socks, because they look more formal that ribbed weave dress socks.

I can still use my plain weave dress socks to casual occasions without a hitch.

These dress socks are obviously black, but I do have them in several other solid colours as well.

The rule that helps me decide what colour socks I should choose for a specific outfit, – is what we're going to talk about next.

Here is the super easy and classic way of deciding what colours your socks should have.

The rule is simply to wear socks in a solid colour, that's similar to that of your pants – and here, the key word is similar.

With my black dress socks, I simply wear all my black and navy blue dress pants, – as well as my dark and black jeans.

With light grey and grey pants, I use grey socks like these.

If i'm wearing a pair of khaki coloured cargo pants like these, – I'll probably opt-in for a pair of beige socks like these.

Next we are going to look at how to pick the right type of socks, – depending on what kind of shoes we're wearing.

To make it easy for myself, I've divided shoes into three different categories – and I only use one type of socks for each category.

The categories are: semi formal and formal shoes and boots.

Which I always use dress socks for.

The second category is casual shoes and for that category I always choose liner socks, – if I don't choose to go sockless.

Lastly we have athletic shoes like trainers and for those I always use tube socks.

For me a semi formal and formal shoe and boot, is anything from sneakers to boots.

Basically all types of shoes I would wear dress socks with are: Sneakers like these.

Open or closed lacing leather shoes like these.

All types of casual and formal boots.

Next up are casual shoes.

When I say casual shoes I basically mean shoes that are mainly used for leisure activities.

Classic examples of casual shoes that I would use either liner socks, or go sockless in, are: Loafer like these.

Boat shoes.

And off course, sneakers.

You may have noticed that sneakers are in both the dress socks and the liner socks category What kind of socks you're wearing with sneakers, really depend on what kind of bottoms you're wearing.

If I'm wearing shorts, I would go for liner socks, – however if I'm wearing jeans or a casual pair of dress pants, – I would definitively go for dress socks.

As you also may have noticed, sandals aren't represented in this category – and that's because sandals, with their open toe designs, really don't permit the use of socks.

That basically means, no socks when you're wearing sandals.

The last of the three categories of shoes, are athletic shoes.

As I've already said, tube socks should only be worn with shoes intended for sports.

That's all I had to show you guys in this video, thanks for watching!

How to knit two identical socks with Regia Pairfect by ARNE & CARLOS

Hello and welcome to our place.

We have a very special treat for you today.

This is something we've been looking forward to for such a long time! Our first REGIA Pairfect collection thatwe have designed in collaboration with REGIA and we're the only ones in theworld who can do this technology, because they've got a patent for that.

Isn't that marvelous, Arne? It's amazing! Anyway, we wanted to explain to you how to knit two socks, two identical socks with REGIA It's a very straightforward, very easy technology and the result is always going to be two pairs that look exactly the same, as you can see here See? They look exactly the same.

You don't have to think, just knit! This is a great thing for peoplethat are new beginners, intermediate knitters that don't like knitting with more than one color, and even advanced knitters if you just want to do a project really just mechanically, knitting a sock and you don't want tothink about the pattern.

The pattern is going to come up we made all by itself, because we made it for you.

So.

.

.

Join us and learn how to knit twoidentical socks! Aren't you excited? One of the same time, we don't do magic.

No, boring.

.

.

To knit two identical socks using theREGIA technology this is what you're going to do: You've got your ball of yarn and as youalready see there's some yellow on this ball of yarn.

The yellow thread isactually nothing that you knit with but it is a marker, it shows you where tostart And they've even made it so easy for you That they put this little thing that says Easy Start with a finger pointing at it It means that you take that and that's where you start so what you do is you pull out theyellow thread, the thread from inside the ball of yarn you keep pulling there's quite a lot of that hereapparently Uuuh.

.

.

Here it is.

(laugh) We've pulled out the threadand this is where we cut it basically so we don't need this it's just a marker so can you please? The scissors' behind you So I cut Give it to me! You've cut the yellow and now you cast on the stitches that you need to knit the sock.

We are actually, because the REGIA technology only works with a sock from the top down, you're going to cast on the 64 stitches, 16 on each needle, and then you're going to knit and purl the rib So cast on 16 each, and then we just do the rib Yeah, one knit, one purl.

Cast on, and westart the rib.

.

.

And then we explain further the technology.

See you when we finish the rib, OK? OK, so we've done the ribbing and the thing with Pairfect is that it even tells when you have the ribbing done and in this case it's because we have the light blue color and here you see I'vegot two stitches left on my needle and as you can see now the blue is becoming red so what I'll do is I'll just knit these two let's see this one is a purl, this is apurl, and then knit.

.

.

sorry and because the color changed it's nowtime to start knitting the sock If you want you can do the rib with one needle and then change to bigger one size bigger for the sock em but you don'thave to this look good anyway yeah So basically you start the stockinette, inthe change of color and you just keep knitting OK, so we fast-forward and now we aremore or less here knitting the stockinette this is all being coming out by itself, we haven't done anything other than knitted and knitted and knitted, on the round so basically as you can see there's time for a new color change and it's going back to blue and this means that we get to knit the heel now so you startknitting the heel and it's going to be a short row heel that we're going to showyou in another episode Now we're just explaining the technology of Pairfect so the heel we'll see separately But anyway you knit a short roll heel and after that you start shaping your foot.

So let's come back in a minute when we've done that.

So, here we are.

We've actually done quite a bit after the heel: here's the heel and the foot and this is where Pairfect is so clever.

You see the top down means that when you start from the top and you knit to the heel this is always going to be the same size regardless of your foot size and after you do the heel, which is in the blue color, then you start doing your foot and for your foot you can stop wherever you need to stop depending on your size It's pretty brilliant the way it is.

So you just keep knitting, and knitting andknitting and knitting until, yeah You see, that “Oh, OK – this is my size” and then you start decreasing You decrease on both sides – Arne will show you that, quickly So, you have to decrease: we get the decreasing on the correct side, according to the foot, or the heel.

So the decreasing will be on this side and on this side, because the heel is pointing in this direction And we just knit.

We end this needle withknit two together and one, and knit one.

Knit two together, knit one.

.

.

Then on the next needle we start with knit one.

.

.

And we knit two together.

.

.

Then we knit the rest of the needle and then we do the same on the two next needles.

Easy.

.

.

Then you decrease on every second round So here is the ready-made sock.

Basicallyas you can see this is a really large foot, and it's definitely not my sizeit's the biggest mens style.

It's someone else's foot, yeah – exactly.

But anyway, if it would have been my sizeI would have probably stopped, started decreasing around here andit would have been knitted until more or less there So, see that's the really cool thing: if yourfoot is smaller, the toe is going to be, the color the solid blue color ofyour toe is going to be smaller; if you have a bigger foot, then this is going to be longer So basically we finished our first sock: I've sewn in the toe and I've cut the yarn.

And, this is the ball that I was knitting with.

As you can see there is a little bit left over of the blue yarn and that doesn't really matter:what you do now is you pull, and you pull.

.

.

And you pull, and pull.

.

(and you can pull forever.

.

.

) You can pull forever and ever.

.

.

But at one point, depending on the size of your foot.

.

.

Eventually.

.

.

(laugh) eventually.

.

.

There should be some yellow coming here And the yellow marks the beginning (laugh) Wow, there! There, you see? I pulled it out and suddenly I didn't even see the yellow So you see the yellow is there so, if you do me the honors of cutting that I have to cut it on the same place.

.

.

No, that's the end.

That's the end of the old sock Yeah, oh! So it doesn't matter.

So you see here, on the floor, we've got the end of the old sock That's not nice, the way you do it.

.

.

Well you might want to recycle thisinto a Barbie sweater or something but I want to knit a second sock, as it issupposed to be two; so you see here we've got the yellow thread, and then once you start pulling again we are going to get.

.

.

You get yellow for your Barbie sweater! We're going to get blue.

.

.

should be coming up any minute now.

.

.

There it is! And this is the second sock;so, you take it, you cut it and now we can and now we can knit sock number two! Doing it exactly the same way.

Casting on 64 stitches, knitting the ribdown when the color changes (I want it looking the same so measure it.

) (good) So when the color changes you do the stockinette again, the short row heel, the foot, finish the foot and you'll have two identical pairs.

Don't worry about the tension, don'tworry about anything This is all very engineered, veryhigh-tech: I mean we're living in 2016! Come on! The machines have thought about this foryou, there's no need to worry.

You will get two identical socks no matter what you do, as long as you cut the yellow thread – remember that.

The yellow thread has nothing to do with the sock It's just a marker to show you where youstop, and when you start.

So on that note, we've got loads of socks on our way as you can see, we've prepared many many.

We've also got a great line of colours coming up.

Unfortunately we don't have all thecolours here but here's a picture for you, so that you can see the different stocksthat we've done Yeah, we're very excited about Pairfect, hopefully we will do more if this is a success I have to fix this, because this can be used for something Well, yeah.

But that's the part of the toethat you didn't need.

OK.

So anyway, this is Pairfect technology.

I hope this made sense And it's so easy! Actually, they look good! Well, they're our designs.

.

.

Obviously, they're amazing! Because we designed then ourselves.

.

.

And they are going to be amazing because you are going to be able to knit this, no problem.

So I hope you'll enjoy it And we do the short roll heel on the next time Next time, we're going show you how to do the short row heel that you need to do for this pattern and we're posting a pattern; the Pairfect pattern is posted already on our website So you can just go in and get it off of there.

Go get your Pairfect yarn, and start knitting two identical socks.

Thank you! You're welcome (laugh).

Giving Socks to Homeless People Sleeping Rough in London and Cardiff

(mellow upbeat music) – Hey everybody, I'm in London.

Last year I was here, I recorded a vlog, I was just starting vlogging, I really had no clue what I was gonna do.

I was inspired by Casey Neistat, but I am never gonna be a Casey Neistat, so it took me a whileto develop my own style and I'm still in that process.

Bottom line is the footage that I shot, eventhough the stories were good, it was really bad and I wasn't able to connectthe stories together.

Now I was in London almost a year ago on a secret project, that secret project is still going on, but I just left Facebook, because Oculus Rift haspicked Invisible People to do a virtual realityfilm on homelessness, that's in the process.

I flew from San Francisco to here.

First off, I'm gonna start this vlog with some highlights ofthe last vlog I shot, very segmented, but I firstran into my friend, Lisa.

(mellow melodic music) I found her.

– Yay.

– This is Lisa.

Oh, my God, she teaches meall the British expressions I shouldn't Tweet.

I'm sitting here with Lisa, – Hello.

– and our new friend, Stephanie, – Hello.

– [Mark] and Stephanie is ahomeless veteran out here, – Yep.

– and earlier I was able to teach Lisa how to say brass.

– Brass, it's brass.

– Brass.

– [Stephanie] Brass.

– We've been having anargument about brass, – It's brass.

– Brass.

– It's brass.

– Tell 'em it's brass.

(background chattering) Breaks your heart and even more so that people just walk by.

Tell me about homelessness in London or homelessness comparedto what you saw today, compared to what yousee in rural Chippenham.

– It's the same, but it's different, so there's more people, there's more people, the stories.

See the thing is you come to London and I expect the servicesto work better in London, I understand places likeWiltshire, we're very rural, where the services are really stretched and they don't have the funding, but you come to Londonand you expect to hear that the services are working and we're just hearing time and time again that even the servicesin London aren't working.

– Right, I mean, everybodywe talk to theoretically from what, a year outside should be helped in some way and really shouldn't be onthe street, but they are.

– Yeah, and I think a lot of it is the fact that theydon't trust the services and for instance, they weresaying going into a day center is filling in all the forms.

– Right.

– Actually all they wanna do is they just wanna go in and sleep, sleep, get something to eat andprobably have a shower and people in charge areasking questions all the time.

– Right, and we're seeing alot of that in the States, because it's all about data, data, data, because that's hownon-profits are getting paid and that is important, but people don't often fitin an Excel spreadsheet and filling out all this data, data, data – Everybody.

– can be a roadblockto accessing services.

– Yeah, so actually the services need to, I don't know, they just needto operate in a different way, in a much more approachable way.

– So you've got a train to catch.

– I've got a train to catch.

– Who's your favorite Yank?- You're my favorite Yank.

– And we have a new name, Loud Fat Yank.

– Yeah, I keep having to shush you.

– And she thinks I'm likehyper and overactive.

– No, it's actually you're quite quieter, 'cause you don't like it.

(mellow upbeat music) – Then Lisa and I connected with John, who was sleeping rough at the time.

This is John, otherwise knownas Bullring Bash on Twitter and Lisa, you've already met and the three of us just meeting for the first time inperson, we Tweet together and John said it was okay to do video, as long as Lisa was in it, because he knows she is now a superstar.

Tell me about social mediaand how it helps you, while you're out here on the streets.

– Well, I don't know, that's a good question.

Using Twitter and otherthings that are available, it helps, I'm hoping ithelps some of the people working within the different sectors get an idea of what it's like and I've heard it timeand time and time again, people are saying it to me, all they know is whatthey've read in a book, they don't actually know what it's about, I hear it so often.

(mellow upbeat music) – Then I met George, tookGeorge out from Crisis and taught him storytellingout on the streets.

This is George.

– Hi, how you doing? – George is the newStoryteller Journalist.

– Stories Journalist at Crisis, yeah.

– Go ahead.

– Inspired by Mark's work, we're going out on London, all over the countrytalking to homeless people, trying to reframe, remake stereotypes, humanize people, – Yeah.

– give them human people, not homeless people.

– So this is Mervin.

We're here on The Strand in London, he's out here sleeping rough, he's been out here 25 years.

– Sure have, yeah.

– And I just did hisstory on Invisible People and one thing we didn'ttalk about in the video is he loves fishing.

– That's right, I certainly do, cod fishing, sea fishing and pike.

– And oh my gosh, what's the Northernpike fishing like here? – Brilliant, absolutely brilliant.

– Really?- Really.

– Oh, my gosh, I have to go.

– Get your latest strip, – Oh, my God.

– You're talking 20 pounders plus, honestly, they're monsters.

– Really? – Seriously, yeah.

– Oh, my gosh, when was the last time you went fishing? – Last time I went fishing was last year up in the Lake District and I caught a 27 and a half pound pike.

– Oh, wow! – On a rubber lure as well.

– Oh, my gosh.

– Yeah.

– If I had more timeand we had some money, we'd have to go fishing.

– Certainly would, definitely.

– Oh, my gosh.

– Definitely.

– Thanks so much for talking to me.

– That's no problem, it's a pleasure.

– [Mark] George and I went andtook John to buy a backpack.

Nicer handle.

– Alright.

– What do you think? – Okay, you are theguys that are buying it? – Yep, cool.

– Okay, we'll go pay.

– Okay.

– This could go, history! (mellow upbeat music) – So George, we've been outon the streets a little bit, had some interesting situations.

– Certainly have, we'vehad a mix of everything.

– What do you think, what's your first thoughts? – I think that John washere to look after us, Mark's been a great guide as well.

It's certainly opened my eyesto seeing homeless people as people first andforemost more than anything, they've all got stories, they're all human beings and it's a big job.

– Yeah, change, change the mantra, it'snot homeless people, it's people that are homeless.

Bingo, yes, then we get somewhere.

– And now here we arein London once again.

I'm gonna go out on the streets with Lore.

(mellow upbeat music) Walking down the street.

– Guess who he bumps into? Me.

– John! – Again.

– Helicopter.

– As soon as I start the camera, – The helicopters.

– the police are looking for ya.

– Yeah, yeah, yeah.

(helicopter whirring overhead) That's the other thing, but then there's nothingwrong apart from being, – Except for waiting for me.

– Except for Mark maybe.

– He knew— Yeah, the marked man.

– He knew I'd be walkingdown here giving out socks.

– Yeah, the Hanes socks, lovely socks too.

– The Hanes socks and there's a lead in.

– Look, some Hanes socks.

– Excellent.

– And I'm here with Lore, she's a Senior Directorof CSR for Hanes Europe.

– Yes.

– Russia and South Africa.

– South Africa, cool, correct.

– And I've met a new friend.

– Thank you.

– Lovely to meet you.

– And today we're gonna walk The Strand and hand out Hanes socks.

– I can't wait.

Let's do it.

(mellow upbeat music) – Blown away.

– Why? Why, Mr.

Horvath?- Because I have seen you connecting with homeless people like you were an outreach worker, but this is the first time you've ever done anything like this.

– Yep, I'm overwhelmed, wonderful.

– Yeah, but I mean, likethis last gentleman, you got down at his level, – Yeah.

– [Mark] you engaged inconversation all on your own, I didn't have anything to do with it, you wanted to talk to 'em.

– And he didn't speak good English and we still were able to communicate in the other languages he did speak and me with my English and Italian and we got there, we got there.

– Yeah, and what was his story? – He's been here for three years, he would really love to go back to Turkey, but due to lack of work opportunities, he finds himself here, but he's hoping to make ends meet, so that he can eventually go back.

– Yeah.

– But yeah.

– Now we've only walkeda couple of blocks.

– We haven't seen half, we haven't seen a fractionof what is out there and another gentleman we saw says he's come here from Edinburgh and he actually took the time to thank us for stopping and speaking to him, because he said very, very few people will stop and exchangeany word, even a hello, so it actually made hisday, that we stopped and said hello and gave him some socks.

– Fab.

– Brilliant.

– We're Face Timing, – Enjoy, students.

– in the middle of the street.

– There you go.

These are all these, oh, wow, hi! Hello darling, hi.

I wish you guys were here.

– As a rule, I normallydon't wake anybody up, when giving out socks, but on her own, Lore found a unique way to help somebody.

She stuffed his shoes with socks, when he wakes up, he'll have new socks.

(mellow upbeat music) I just got done spending timehanding out socks with Lore, now I'm gonna go see Lisa again.

She calls me the Old Fat Yankor the Old Loud, what is it, Old Loud Yank? Say hello.

– Hello.

– An amazing day, going out with Lore, handing out socks in Central London.

Then Lisa, who's Chief Exec of Doorway in Chippenham took me out for a proper, as they say Sunday roast, really, really an amazing day.

(mellow upbeat music) Day two in London.

I'm headed to a conference put on by Crisis, a charity here in theUK, that brought me over, I'm speaking in Wales, this is the Londonversion of the conference.

Really excited that get to hear about homelessness and solutions to end it and really grateful thatthey brought me over.

Crisis is the firstcharity that I know of, that championed research into messaging and they'd looked aroundto find a non-profit or charity in the homeless sector, that was doing messaging right and they were inspiredby Invisible People.

(dynamic upbeat music) I'm now in Cardiff, Wales, the first time I've ever been here.

I'm walking around in a strange country, a strange city, at least strange to me handing out Hanes socks, actually the Europeanversion of Hanes socks, they sent me a couple ofboxes, I'm so grateful and it all may be a little strange, if I've never done this before, but I've been doing itfor like 10 years now, so just thinking aboutthat is pretty amazing.

Anyways, I'm gonna go meetsome new homeless friends that are sleeping roughand explore the city.

(mellow upbeat music) There's people sleeping roughall over downtown Cardiff.

Hey, you guys need some socks? Walking around downtown Cardiff handing out socks, actually looking for Andy, his story last nightreached a lot of people.

– Why are you sleeping rough? Because problems in my life.

Why don't you get up and goand sleep somewhere else? Because I haven't gotnowhere else to sleep, got nowhere else to sleep.

– [Mark] People are so judgmental.

They don't know what it's like.

– You'd never believe howjudgmental they really are.

You're just the same as everybody else, you're just a human being, just to get by and when you're homeless, to try and get by is the hardest thing I've ever had to do.

– What really blew meaway about Andy's story is how he talked aboutpeople being judgmental, it's the same in the United States, it's the same in Canada, same in the United Kingdom inLondon, I'm sure other cities.

Also interesting is peoplekind of took it the wrong way, what he was saying about food.

– People think that you wantfood, yeah, you do want food, but you want your own food, they passes you a Burger King, what if you don't want Burger King? What if you don't want, you know what I mean? I get passed about 15 Burger Kings a day, I get passed about 15 McDonald's a day, I don't eat 'em, I justchuck 'em in the bin.

– The point is homelesspeople have plenty of food, what they don't have is housing, what they don't have is a toothbrush, or wipes to stay clean, thingsthat could really help them, but instead people just keep on giving fast food, fast food, fast food and people have good intentions, but we need to educate people about the realities of homelessness.

I'm running into a challengeI've never faced before, so I like to give everybodytwo pairs of socks and I'm giving two pairs of socks and they're giving apair to their friends, but after I leave andthen I run into new people and they already have a pair of socks, so then I have to run back, 'cause they've got plentyof socks, thank you, Hanes, oh, my gosh and then I've got to run back and say hey guys, I've gotplenty, you can have two, you know, I've neverhad that happen before, I mean, normally a homeless person, it's rare that they'll take more than two, occasionally they'll ask for their friend or their girlfriend.

George works for Crisis, I'mhonored they brought me in, speaking at their event tomorrow.

– Mark is the inspirationfor a lot of our work, we're trying to reframe homelessness, – Oh, my gosh.

– make people think about human beings first, homeless people, a long way beyond that.

– I'm honored, totally honored.

(mellow upbeat music) Ed, you're living inCardiff, you're homeless, tell me about it.

– It's hard, it's hardwork, it's hard work, begging's illegal, even though I do beg, I don't have much choice in it, 'cause I have to make money.

I've been out nearly seven years, my ex-partner walked outthe door with both my kids and my best friend and a lot of money and there's no help, thereis no help for single men.

It's hell, it's like living in hell, it really is like living in hell and you know, going tobed hungry is no fun, – Yeah.

– it's no fun going to bed hungry.

– Putting on the socks.

– Yep.

(laughing) I've got no socks, so it's a godsend.

– [Mark] Oh, you didn't have any socks? – No.

– Oh, my gosh.

(mellow upbeat music) – Mark has to write his speech.

– I have, they're puttingme to work tomorrow.

– Exactly.

– And I'd better do good, otherwise, well, no, they'll probablyjust put me on the plane early, if I do bad.

– Exactly.

Doesn't go well, bye, thanks.

Mark's gonna smash it.

– What's really, talking to the Crisis Wales, Nick tonight, – Yeah, Nick.

– and he said two years ago, you didn't see the homelessthat you do around here.

– No, you don't, and loadsof cities are the same, it seems to have exploded recently, Cardiff maybe more than most, but yeah, it's extraordinary, it needs to stop.

– Well, tomorrow's a big day, I'm gonna go and try todo the song and dance.

George recommends that I do the mic drop.

– Yeah, sure.

– Horvath out.

– Horvath out.

– So we're doing that now.

I'm so excited, I'm walkingto the National Museum.

Crisis invited me tospeak at their conference.

If I can say something that will spark change, positive change in leaderswho can influence others, oh, my gosh, that's amazing.

(dynamic upbeat music) This video as of rightnow has had 40, 000 views and what's really amazing is it started a conversation on Reddit, where formerly homelesspeople are now commenting on their experiences of whatit was like being homeless and the world is watchingthat and it's creating change.

The outreach team is picking me up early, we're going out in Cardiff to serve breakfast to roughsleepers around the city and thanks to Hanes, we'll be giving socks, but first, the hotel just doesn'thave your normal entrance, cars can't pull up and then they didn'thave a cart this morning, so we grabbed a food cart and then this handle came off when I'm taking it down the stairs, but all good problems to have.

And this is Amy, – Hello, nice to meet you.

– and she knew me by the boxes.

Hey everybody, I'm here with Danielle, – Hi.

– and we're at The Wallich, right?- Yes.

– and what are we doing today? – We're doing street-based outreach for homeless people inCardiff city center, so we have got breakfast, coffee and then we try and supportpeople into accommodation.

– [Mark] So how many peopledo you see in a given day? – It depends, at the momentanything between 25 and 50.

Yesterday we saw about 38.

– [Mark] And how often do you go out? – Every day.

– [Mark] Every day you'regoing out serving breakfast? – Every day, including Christmas Day.

– [Mark] Awesome, tell meabout homelessness in Cardiff.

– Homelessness in Cardiffhas risen quite a lot steadily over the last few years.

It's quite a compact city and there are a lot of frontlineservices, which is good.

– [Mark] And why do you do this? – Why?- Yeah.

– I've been doing thisfor about eight years from my background asa drug worker anyway, we see a lot of substancemisuse with rough sleepers.

– Yeah, but why this?- Why this? – [Mark] Yeah, you couldbe a banker or a pilot or you know, there's a lotof different vocations, why helping people? – I don't know, everyonedeserves to be helped, I guess, I don't know.

– We were just talking aboutworkforce and lived experience.

– We are and at The Wallich, we believe that lived experience is really, really important, who better to help peopleout of homelessness than people who haveexperienced it themselves? So we have a commitment as a charity to employ people who havebeen homeless over experience, homelessness or being vulnerably housed and currently 17% of ourworkforce, we have 370 staff, 17% of our workforce haveexperienced homelessness and we are committed tomaking that 25% by 2020.

– That is so awesome.

– So our receptionist in our head office was formerly homeless, – Yeah.

– some of our outreach workers, some of our hostel workershave experienced it, so they know firsthand how to help people, it's not simply empathy, it's really important too.

– Yeah.

The city center, theyallowed the van to come in and Costa, I think I'm saying that right, provides coffee, so they'regoing up to get the coffee and providing a meal and coffee and today some Hanes socks.

(dynamic upbeat music) Driving through the pedestrian part here, there's a rough sleeper walked up and he's just in bad shape and I guess he had a strokeand he's still out here.

We gotta get these peopleoff the streets into housing.

Often outreach teamsdon't have the budgets to go out with tangible items to be able to provide real needs, it's okay to feed people, aslong as you're doing something to get them out of that situation, just going out and feedingpeople is not really responsible.

Also outreach teams, they just don't have the budgets to go out often with tangible items, so that The Wallich is going out every day including Christmas feeding breakfast, but also helping them get offthe streets, it's amazing.

Really grateful that the outreach team took me out on their breakfast run today.

You know, most people, when they go visit a newcity or a new country do tourist stuff, I do homeless stuff and I just think it's perfect.

(dynamic upbeat music) I'm starting my last day in London visiting Mencap, a charity that is one of my favorites.

A few years ago, theybrought me in for a month and not only did I go around and train a lot of theirstaff around the UK, but they also wanted todevelop social media programs for their clients withlearning disabilities and it was an awesome, awesome, awesome experience.

Things that I truly adore about walking into Mencap is the receptionist, probably the nicestreceptionist I've ever met, because she really takescare of people visiting and this is Joise.

– Thank you so much, what up, it's me.

– [Mark] How long have you worked here? – I've been here now over 25 years or a bit more.

– Wow! Wow! 'Cause I do remember youwhen I visited last time.

– Yes, I first started here, there was a flower shop across the road and now we're all inclusive, that's what it should've been like before, – Yeah.

– so yes, and now I'm on reception, there's a lot of stuff we can do, people have got tounderstand, we can do it too, practice and do it, yeah.

– Awesome.

– Yeah.

– [Mark] You make myday every time I visit.

– Yes.

– [Mark] I actually don't wanna leave, I just wanna hang outin the lobby with you.

– Thank you.

– This is Jackie, – Hello.

– and she runs comms here.

She just told me somethingthat I didn't know.

– Yeah, do you know what, Mark came how many years ago? – Yeah, four years ago.

– Four years ago and he spent some time helping us with our social media activity and we now have over200, 000 Twitter followers and it's all down to this man here.

– Wow, that is— So thank you very much.

– No, thank you, thank you.

(dynamic upbeat music) Hey everybody, this is Dave.

– Morning.

– And we know each otherthrough With One Voice, we spent a week together in Montreal, – Montreal.

– with a bunch of other like-minded people using art and music for activism and Dave slept rough righthere in this area in London.

– Yes, I did indeed, so we're gonna show youa few little places, which are literally as we justwalk across the road here, we're actually walking towards.

So I never know the name of this place, it's Shoreditch Church, whatever, St.

Leonard's, yeah, there you go, only I'm readingthe sign to tell you that.

But this is a great place forhomeless people in this area to go and get soup, food, clothing.

They also do art, yeah, art projects whilethey're eating as well, which I think is really important, but also attached to this is some venues, which are run by SCT, which is Spitalfields Crypt Trust, I have to get that one right, who do a project for ex-homeless addicts.

They have a live-in, permanent, I think it's18-month project, where you stay and you get recovery, you then get into work, they have the restoration store, where they restore furniture, which helps the fund and then just around the corner from that, we have Paper and Cups, which is voted the best coffee shop in London last year and it's run by ex-homelessaddicts as well.

– Really awesome, so how long were yousleeping rough out here? – So I was in this area foraround about six months, before I got into a homeless hostel, which I was in for anotheryear on top of that, so yeah, I love this area.

– It's my first timehere, it's really awesome.

– The thing is it's gottwo different sides, so you've got the gentrification side, which has sort of implodedinto this area now, but then you've also still got the social classes in this area, so they sort of battle between each other, which I think is quite nice in a way, but they tend to gel quite well, the only problem is now you're looking at three quid a coffee, – Yeah, yeah.

Yeah, yeah.

– which is that isn't good.

– Spending the last few hours in London handing out socks, justwent and saw Homer, gave him the extra suitcase that I had, then I almost just got hit by a bus, this wrong side of the roador other side of the road, I just don't get.

Then there's a sweet old lady, probably 70 years old livingoff one of these streets, by the looks of her, youwould never ever know that she's sleeping rough, but she says she's been out here 10 years, oh, my gosh, I'd do anything if I could, she's been sleeping rough 10 years.

I'm seeing the similarities in UK and United States as far as homelessness, there's lots of bureaucracy, lots of politics, but the bottom line is itall comes down to housing and we've got to get these people off the streets into housing.

Socks or Sockless: Quick Intro to Rock Climbing Shoes | Smart Rock Climbing

Alright everyone, it's time to talk aboutshoes.

A number of years ago Nike asked us a question:”Is it the shoes.

” To be honest with you, I really think thatit is.

The shoes that have been developed over theyears are amazing.

I'm going to give you a quick introductionto them, talk about wearing them and how to use them.

Hi I'm Pieter Neethling with SmartRockClimbing.

com.

Training you to climb from the ground up.

So to give you a little appreciation for rockclimbing shoes, the first shoes were literally metal cleats that people would take up onlong climbs.

These are definitely not the shoes that youwant to take anymore.

We've come a long since then, so now mostrock climbing shoes have a type of rubber that's super sticky and is able to stick tothe rock amazingly well.

To be honest with you, I am consistently impressedwith how well rock climbing shoes perform on the rocks.

If you're not convinced, I encourage you tostart climbing with some rock climbing shoes and then try climbing with some sneakers, some tennis shoes or some other form of shoe.

In that moment you will gain such an appreciationfor the gear that's been created for rock climbing.

Most rock climbing shoes are created in Italyor other parts of Europe and so, because of that, they just use the European sizing.

So to help you with figuring out what sizeof shoe you should wear, here's a universal size chart.

Depending on the shoe makers, some shoe sizeswill be a little bit smaller or some will be bigger.

In the different reviews that you can findon different rock climbing retailer sites, you will be able to find helpful informationto find the perfect size for you.

One thing to let you know is that a lot ofrock climbing retailers are amazing when it comes to return policy.

So if you think “Oh, this might be the rightsize for me” and then you find out “Man, this is just a size to big” just let the retailerknow and you can usually send the shoes right back.

Whether the shoes you get maybe has Velcroor maybe laces, the goal is to have them feel secure.

A lot of people may feel like rock climbingshoes feel super tight when they're climbing.

To tell you the truth, that secure feelingcan feel a little bit tight.

But I'm telling you, you want them to be niceand snug when you're up on the wall because that will make a big difference in your climbingskill.

One thing to take into consideration whenyou're trying to get some shoes is what your goal is.

Most climbers, are just out there to havea good time and not do the most aggressive climbs.

For that, I suggest using a flat pair of shoes.

But if you're interested in doing some aggressivebouldering or some unique techniques, there are shoes with a more aggressive downturnthat are able to help you for those particular problems.

To be honest, rock climbing shoes do not lastforever.

One thing you can do to help you if you'rein a situation when you're looking at your shoes and you're like “I don't know if I cando this, ” is you can get your shoes resoled.

Now there's a variety of sites that you cango to to resole your shoes.

In the description below, you can find a couplelinks that can help you to resole your shoes.

A typical resole costs somewhere around $45.

Though that might sound a little bit expensive, it's definitely cheaper than getting an $80, $90 $150 pair of rock climbing shoes.

Now for the debate: Shoes I wear socks, orshould I go sockless when I'm rock climbing.

To tell you the truth, it's really up to you.

For some people, they like to feel a bit moresnug so they will wear rocks, for other people they like to feel a little more control ontheir footwork when they're rock climbing.

For me personally, I like to go sockless.

I like having a little bit more extra controlwhen I'm climbing and it doesn't really bother me climbing without socks.

The one thing I've got to let you know aboutwhen you start climbing without socks, your shoes will start to smell a little bit quicker.

There's a variety of different methods forhelping you clean your shoes from Febreze to dryer sheets, to hand washing them.

In the future I'm going to be creating additionalvideos to talk more about shoe maintenance.

But if not really interested in repairingshoes or dealing with smelly shoes, you could always go Gollum style and climb without them.

Thanks for joining me for this video in theIntro to Climbing Series.

If you're new to rock climbing, I really encourageyou to check out the whole series.

This series is geared up to get you startedand get going in your rock climbing experience.

Each week I'm going to be coming out withnew videos so I just really encourage you to subscribe so that you can stay in touchand if you want to say “hello” personally to me, I encourage you to swing by SmartRockClimbing.

comto say “hello” leave a comment, leave a smiley face, whatever you want.

Thanks! I really appreciate that you've come by andtaken the time to watch this video.

I hope that you get equipped so that you cango on your next journey.

What's The Ideal Sock Height? | GCN Asks The Pros

– The UCI's rule book.

How we'd all love to just rip it up and throw it away.

Well, there is one rule whichwas recently introduced, and that was all about sock length.

Let's ask the riders whatthey think about that and also what the idealsock length should be.

(techno music) – (laughs) Triathletes, be careful.

– (laughing) (air whooshing) You are a stylish man, I've got to say.

Now the UCI was got a ruleabout the length of the socks.

(laughing) What's the perfect sock length? – Now the question is the shoe cover, because also on the trackthe shoe cover is back, but yeah, always at the limit.

So, the good tips isdo a sign on your legs about your alpha part of the legs and yeah, put the socks at the limit.

– Maybe a tattoo on the leg? – Probably a tattoo, but I'mnot sure about how cool it is have the tattoo there.

(laughing) – Are you a fan of people, essentially looking like triathletes or footballers on the bike or not? – (laughs) Triathletes, be careful.

(laughing) – Yeah, sorry about that.

– Yeah, I think there istoo long, there is too long.

Actually, I have these one pair of socks I used them quite a lot in the Giro and they just got longer and they just stretched and stretched, now are too long.

– Oh yeah.

– Yeah, yeah, that's true.

And that was too long, yeah, I think it can be too long, that's definitely.

So I don't like to go above the UCI rule.

This is the only UCIrule I like to respect.

– (laughs) So how long is too long? – How long is too long? If it goes above your calf it's too long.

– There we are, nice and simple.

– I think, it's like, ain'twe look at it and think it's a big rigmarole allover something quite petty when you look at some of the other issues we face in cycling.

But I guess it has to be, you know, in cycling is this funnytraditional that we have to still, like bicycles still look like bicycles like they did back in the day.

They're not, they don't look like, sort of your equivalent of going from a ToyotaCorolla to a Formula One car.

You still have the sortof basic silhouette of a bicycle in there, and they now want to keep the cycling tradition alive.

So I can see that.

It just has to be, you can't have peoplerolling off the start line pulling up their socks aftergoing through the check and then podium.

I mean that sort of thing is quite brazen.

So maybe some leniency.

I mean it's quite, the whole UCI check, when it first came about was quite funny.

Obviously they've got afancy old jig for it now, but you'd kind of measure.

We'd be out in the bus before measuring the distance betweenour ankle bone and our knee and then you'd draw a littleline two centimeters above where the midpoint is.

And say to the commissaire “That's, yeah, I measured it myself, that's the line.

” And he'd be like “Oh, okay you've done my job for me.

” Obviously I never did that.

– Obviously.

– But yeah, all those, that's all gone and done now 'cause they've got that realfancy jig which is it.

So the only way around it isto just pull your socks up after the start round.

– What's the ideal sock length then? Is there one? – I mean for aero it'sas high as possible.

For tan lines it's ankle socks.

For your day to day stuffI'd say a centimeter gap below the bottom of your calf muscle and the top of your socks.

– There we are.

Today though well you've gota totally different look, haven't you? But you have got yourown personalized sliders.

Pretty jealous about those actually.

[techno music] – There are definitelyother things I worry about so if at the start linesomeone's coming over and pulling my socks down, then fine.

– (laughing)- Seriously.

– I would love to see that.

Someone comes and pulls your socks down.

– Yeah.

– There's bigger things inthe world to worry about.

– Definitely, definitely.

Not only in the world, but even in cycling we could.

We have different things to worry about.

– I'd say it's secondary to a bunch of the rulesthey should be enforcing.

– Good man.

And what's the ideal sock length for you? – Whatever they give me.

– I love this guy (laughing).

– I'm absolutely clued up and I think it's allowed to be half.

Half way between your ankle and your– – Your knee? – Top of your tibia.

I don't know.

– Yeah.

– Whatever.

What I think, to be honest, if you're having them half way up it doesn't look too good anyway.

So probably optimum length for aesthetics is going to be a bit lower anyway, and then I've got no idea ifit's faster to have aero socks.

And from what I've been toldit makes almost no difference, so you know if they havea rule that's saying it has to be half way, I'd probably have it alittle bit less anyway just to not look silly.

– And what about today then? Are you rocking the perfectlength do you reckon? – Yeah, I don't know.

Yeah, these are pretty good.

We've got on the DeFeet socks.

So I'd say I'm pretty happy with that.

And they could be a bit longer for me, just 'cause I've got quite long legs, but I wouldn't say you wanttoo much higher than this.

– You're going to look tanned aren't you? Plain white socks likethat here in Australia.

Can't beat it.

– Going to look tan? Not yet.

I've not seen any real sunfor about three months.

So so far it's just been on my hands.

Plenty of suncream on somaybe in a two weeks time when we leave I'll have a tan.

– Yeah, I can't talk about burning.

Look at the state of me.

All right, cut.

(laughing) – I haven't really thought about that.

I mean, I guess in a wayit's probably better than everybody riding aroundwith tubes and stuff, just like knee-high socks.

Which would technicallybe more aerodynamic as I understand it.

I don't think that would be very nice when you go to the beach.

It looks horrible already as it is.

No, I do like sort of high socks, and if it was just for thesocks I don't really care.

But if people try to take an advantage and ride with that compression stuff.

In a way the rule's the rule, and I don't really care too much.

– Okay, is there an idealsock length for you though? – Well I'd need to be fairly long, not like these ankle socks.

– No.

– I'm not a big fan of that.

But yeah, sort of like basically this sort of height.

I've got to sort it out properly.

But that's kind of good, I don't mind.

Just underneath the calf.

– I reckon that looks good.

Well I've got to say that.

– Well thank you very much.

– He stood next to me.

I've got to say that.

– Yeah, I'll wait to see the video to see what you say afterwards (laughing).

– No I'm nice to you.

– Yeah, all right cool.

– It's the other guys.

– Yeah, no that's allright I know them too.

– I think first and foremostthere's probably other rules they look into before theyworry about sock length.

But yeah, you know for me, I'm kind of like a nottoo high, not too low kind of middle ground kind of guy.

And yeah, if some guyswant to go super high, some guys want to do super low doesn't really bother me.

They just don't look good.

– Now speaking about socks, at the Olympics were youone of the no sock brigade, or not? – So funnily enough forthe games we actually ran no socks for the wholeyear before the Olympics.

And then funnily enough alot of teams started also wearing no socks.

And then when we got to the Olympics then we brought the aero socks, and they were still ridingaround with no socks.

So it was a bit of a game to be honest.

But no, for the gameswe all had aero socks.

– Whoever thought socks could be such an interesting conversation? There we go.

The pros thoughts on sock length.

Basically it shouldn'tbe up to your knees, and it shouldn't be at your ankles.

Somewhere just in between.

And also the UCI shouldworry about other rules instead of one about sock length.

And I kind of agree on that.

Let us know what your ideal sock length is down there in the comment section below.

Should the UCI enforce this rule anymore? Get involved in that comment section.

And I'm going to go andput some more suncream on.

And pull my socks up probably.

How to Give Socks to Homeless People.

– Where I started giving out socks and having them in mycar so when people come to ask me at a stop light for change that I give them socks instead and that it's amazing when people's face light up that particularlywhen it's raining out and they're standing there, and that I had a woman tell me that she was so excited to get them, because her socks were wet, and she needed to go change them, and that it makes me feel good that it makes a little bitof difference in their day and gives me a reason to talk to them, because I know that most people don't.

– Hi, my name is Mark, and I'm the founder of Invisible People.

I'm pretty sure I wasn't the first guy that ever handed outsocks to homeless people, but I can almost guaranteethat there's nobody that has handed out as manysocks to as many homeless people in as many cities and asmany countries as I have.

In the last 10 years, I havetraveled to over 300 cities and eight differentcountries handing out socks and making new homeless friends.

Now, there's a couple of reasons why handing out socks is so important.

First, it's a real need.

So many people go out and hand out food.

Socks is something thathomeless people don't often get.

Or they're getting sandwiches all day long but it's very rare thatpeople go and hand out socks.

So there's this nonverbalconnection that says, “Ah, you know, you care.

” But probably most importantis that socks are a real need to people who areexperiencing homelessness.

Imagine that all you haveto store your clothes on is your backpack that you carry all day, so you have maybe a couple pairs of jeans, maybe a couple of shirts, maybea couple pairs of underwear, and some socks, and they get dirty.

They get dirty fast.

What happens is homelesspeople can wash their feet, but often they have toput back on dirty socks.

– I've been wearing thesame socks for over a week, and I haven't had replacementsand I do wash my feet, but the old socks gotta go back on, because I don't wannaget fungus and all that on the bottom of my feet.

You know? So when you're living in the street, you can't take off your shoes, because you wake up without 'em.

People will steal your shoes.

Fungus grows.

– [Mark] Socks are like gold? – Yeah, they're gold.

They are.

– Another reason to giveout socks is it feels good.

It feels good helping somebody else.

Trust me.

Sometimes when I'm feelingdown or a little depressed, I will fill my backpack witha couple of bags of socks, and go out and hand themout to homeless people and make some new friends.

My problems don't go away butI get this new perspective that really helps me deal with life, and I guarantee whenyou're giving other people the gift of brand new, fresh socks, you're gonna get all kindsof amazing responses back from smiles to jumps for joy.

I even had a homeless youth once yell, “White gold!” And you will be recharged and refreshed.

– You guy were gracious enough to give me a brand new pair of socks, which I'm gonna be so happy to put on, 'cause they'll be snugly and clean, and they'll cling to my footlike socks are supposed to, and thank you so much.

– [Mark] Well, when's the lasttime you changed your socks? – It's been a couple weeks.

I washed them out.

Actually, he washed themout for me and dried 'em, and they were hard and yucky, so I get to put theseon brand new (laughs).

– [Mark] Hard and yucky? – Yeah.

– So here are some tips on how to give out socksto homeless people.

The number one question I get is what kind of socks do I buy and what kind of socks do I give away and what kind of socksdo homeless people need? The number one sock you should buy are men's white, white crew sock.

Men's white crew sock.

Don't buy the no shows.

Don't buy tube socks.

Don't buy ankle socks.

And don't buy black sock.

People prefer whitesocks over black socks.

Occasionally, I will takeblack socks and white socks with me and give people a choice.

99 out of 100 times, a homelessperson will say white socks.

I also recommend Hanes socks.

Now, in full disclosure, Hanes occasionally hires me as a consultant and Hanes gives me socks, but I am not being compensatedfor this video whatsoever.

I am doing this, becauseHanes is the best sock for you to buy to give to homeless people, and there's a couple reasons for that.

Hanes is a wonderful, comfortablesock at an amazing price.

There's a lot of buyone give one brands out for the cost of one sock.

For one of the buy one give one brands, you can buy 12 pairs of Hanes socks.

Or at Walmart, you can get deals like this where you get 13 pair, soyou can give out 6 pairs of socks and keep 6 pairsof socks if you wanted to.

Or you could give outall 12 pairs of socks for the price of one pair of sock.

I want homeless people to have socks.

I want them to have quality socks.

So that's why I recommend Hanes.

They're available in Walmarts, and there's Walmarts in every city.

I have to tell you.

When I go to another countrythat Hanes are not so common, people on the streets are blown away.

They're like, “Oh my gosh, these are so comfortable.

“These are amazing socks.

” I've given lots of different socks away, different colors, different sizes.

Hanes is the best sock, the best sock for the money for you and for homeless people.

Safety first.

If you don't feel safe, don't engage with someone.

Now, this is not just homelessness.

We live in a really scary world.

If you don't feel comfortable, don't go down that street.

If you don't feel comfortablewhen somebody tries to panhandle, don't engageand give them socks.

You have to feel safe andcomfortable wherever you are.

Your safety comes first.

I also try to give every homelessperson two pairs of socks.

Sometimes that's not possible.

If I walk into a groupthat's rather large, then maybe I'll go downto one pair of sock.

If the group is way too big, I may not even give socks at all because when I went to school, the teacher said if youdon't have enough gum to give to everybody in theclass, don't bring it out.

So I go by that rule.

One of the things that I findinteresting is that often when I'm handing outsocks to homeless people, they will only take one pair.

They want another pairto go to somebody else.

Occasionally, which is really rare, somebody will ask for more.

Or they'll say, “Hey, mygirlfriend is down here.

“Can I give them?” I don't.

They have to be right in front of me.

I give them two pairs, everybody, two pairs of socks whenever I can.

There's a lot of different waysthat you can hand out socks.

You can, like me, carrysocks in your backpack.

Maybe carry a couple pairs inyour purse or your briefcase.

You can keep a couple ofpairs in your glove box for when you're at that exit ramp and there's a homeless person, and maybe the light turns red, or there's a stop sign, andit's really a little awkward.

Well, you could take that awkward moment and turn it into something wonderful by handing the homeless person some socks.

I often get asked by people, “There's a homelessperson in my neighborhood.

“I see 'em, I walk by 'em.

“I want to know his story.

” Well, a great way to breakthe ice is giving some socks, and then listening.

When I give somebody a pair of socks, I try to make conversation.

Little trick I use is that Icompliment them on something.

Maybe it's their jacket.

Maybe it's their hair.

Maybe it's their hat.

Maybe it's their bicycle.

But, I usually start offand I walk up and I say, “Hi, how you doing? “Would you like some socks?” And if it's not a homeless person, they'll be like, “Get out of here.

” If it's a homeless person, you're gonna see them immediately start glowing with gratitude.

The reaction it's when youoffer a homeless person socks, are I often laugh and Ifeel bad because I laugh, but I so enjoy their response.

I mean, it's almostpredictable that I know they're going to respondin some joyful way, but I never know exactly howthat response is gonna be.

So I chuckle sometimes.

So after I meet a new homelessperson and have some socks, I might say, “Wow, that'sa really nice hat.

” And then I start conversation.

Now, maybe they are not very sociable.

Or maybe they're focusedon something else, and this is not a homeless thing.

I mean, you can go into work and your coworker mighthave got a flat tire or a fight with his wife andthey don't wanna talk either.

Remember, homelessness is horrible.

It sucks.

So people might not be in a social mood.

Or maybe there's mentalillness or some drugs involved.

So at that moment, you'll knowif that person has a wallop and doesn't wanna talk orthey'll give you an opening and say, “Thank you.

“Thank you for commenting on my hat.

” And then you can juststart on some small talk and make a new friend.

Also, a great way to engage community into charity work anda learning experience, let's say you're a church or a youth group or maybe a Rotary club or a school, starting a sock drive andmaybe connecting to one of the local shelters or homeless services is a great way to engagecommunity and learn about homelessness and provide a need and help people all at the same time.

I know people that keepsocks in their briefcase, in their backpacks, in their glove box.

I know people that go outin groups to hand out socks.

There's really no right or wrong way.

Whatever works for you.

The only rule is the law of the street, which is respect everybody.

If you respect people, homeless or not, they're gonna respect you back.

And that's the same thing whenyou're out giving out socks.

Respect people.

Treat them as you wouldwant to be treated yourself and you'll get that respect back.

And it will be an awesome experience.

Let's recap.

The number one rule:if you don't feel safe, don't engage with people.

That's not just homeless people.

That's anywhere.

If you don't feel safe, don't engage.

Number two: the sock thatyou should buy to give out to homeless people or to giveto your local church or school for a sock drive, men's white crew sock.

No other sock.

Now, I recommend Hanes, becausethey're an amazing value and a wonderful sock, butyou can grab whatever sock is available at whatever store you go to.

Again, men's white crew sock.

It can't go wrong.

Number three: I alwaystry to give two socks to every homeless person.

It doesn't always work out that I can give two pairs of socks, butthat is what I shoot for.

And last but far from least is have fun.

Some of the most amazingmoments of my adult life has been out on the streetswith a backpack full of socks making new homeless friends.

Helping somebody in crisiswith something so simple as a pair of new socksmakes you feel grateful for what you have, becausewhen you hand them new socks, you're gonna see amazingsmiles, shouts for joy, and you're just gonna go, “Wow, my life, I was upset “about this today, andthis person is happy just “because they got new socks.

” It's an amazing experience.

Cockpit Floor Repairs – Water Drainage – NO WET SOCKS! (Patrick Childress Sailing #56)

our cockpit floor never drained fast orcompletely enough so we're going to add this big fiberglass and foam wedge tohelp get the water out hello we are Patrick and RebeccaChildress on the Valiant forty sailboat “Brick House” we have been calledhauled out in Richards BaySouth Africa and we are getting our sail boat ready to head down to Tierra del Fuegoonly because we have nowhere else to go and that's a cool sounding name butfirst there is more work we have to do to get this boat ready to cross oceansafter seven months of being hauled out of the water and all the major projectsout of the way now that we're back in the water and at a dock I can take careof some of the smaller but equally important jobs like adding slope.

.

.

alittle extra pitch to the cockpit floor so let's go up to Hayden's shop and justjump right into making the foam panel fiberglassed on one side that'll give usthat pitch okay we're going to come in here and see Hayden Hector from KTC Projects – one of thelocal contractors.

okay hi there Hayden how How are you doing? hey so today's the day wemake a panel yeah it's for my floor and it'll be set up on this big glass sheet.

My laminating table I call it.

okay and the first step is going to be what putting a couple of coats ofRam Wax on so it can release from the table So first your man is going to be putting on ram wax onthe glass table and how many coats will he be putting on? He will be putting on threecoats and then he will start the layup so what you've already done is taken two piecesof foam and join them that's right.

And what did you join itwith? I just use hot glue to join the foam together, so I put a hotglue gun uh-huh glue it together just gonna holdit together until the fiberglass cures on the table okay that's quick hot gluethat's it and it doesn't have to be any stronger than that? No, once it's glassed inits as strong as it will ever be.

Thats where it gets its strength.

Yeah The fiberglass is the strength.

All the foam is doing is doing is acting as a former.

Bufan has made hundreds of these fiberglass foam panels and first he defines the areawith blue tape so he knows exactly where to roll out the polyester resin and thenlay down the pre-cut sections of chopped strand mat and roving then it is a quickroll out of a thick layer of polyester resin.

You can see how the resin is pulling away from the wax in some places.

This is because of the viscosity, the thinness of the resin.

.

it can't hold to itself, where as with gel coat it is much thicker so its bonds to itself and it doesn't allow it to almost fish eye on you.

You would get a very similar thing with spray spray painting on a waxy surface you would get your paint that would have a similar effect Bufan is using 450 gram, that's about16 ounces , chopped strand mat the next layer is woven roving also 450grams or about 16 ounces in imperial measure.

Rather the dumping more resin ontop of this roving Bufan is allowing the resin to soak up from the bottomupwards and that helps to push air and air bubbles out of the cloth and then herolls it out with a thin roller to help spread that resin and only when he needsto then applies more resin to the top of the cloth and then rolls that aroundto help make sure that all of the air bubbles come out and now the final layer of choppedstrand mat often times just called CSM The second layer of CSM is thesame weight as the first layer so now the foamboard gets a good soaking offiberglass resin before it gets turned over on top of the build-up offiberglass lay up to make sure that these cans of weightsdo not get glued to the new work a slick sheet of plastic is used toseparate the can from the fiberglass so it's 8 o'clock in the morning I cancome back about 3 o'clock in the afternoon and pick up my new panelpulling the weights off of the panel we can see how the fiberglass resin hasmigrated all the way up through all all these little perforations which are partof the structure of the panel and so it isn't just a face adhesion it is reallya good bond all the way through the foam panel oh look how smooth that is that isamazing it's also ideally I like to leave itovernight it's not it's like now to take her this looks fine, it's cured, but I justprefer to leave things overnight.

Sure get a good cure on it.

So Hayden what if on my panel if I needed it for something else and Iwanted it good on two sides not just on one side so that's obviously yourlaminates against the gloss, gel coat finish.

.

.

other side is your second layup asyou can see with the cross-section it could be your bottom layer with your laminate and then your foam foam core, and then you do your second layup on top of that consolidating with the steel rollerand then a layer of Peel ply on top of that and then everything gives you a grip surfaceokay so you're not worried about squishing everything down and like avacuum bag.

if you wanted to you could vacuum bag it but I don't dovacuum bagging on most of my panels hmm mainly panels I do are for cosmeticpanels I don't really do structural panels so as for structural panels ifyou're worried about strength and you had a spec to meet obviously the idealway to go forward with that would be vacuum bagging to consolidate it 100%.

well it seems like these are pretty darn strong as it isI mean laminating on two sides even without vacuum bagging this gives youyour strength that you need for for the application you're looking at.

okay greatthanks! FaNTASTIC! So if you want to do this at home in your garage and youdon't want to have to go through the big expense of a thick glass table a pieceof plastic laminate like Formica or wilsonart each not shiny piece would bethe best just lay it out on a good solid strong flat table and be sure to wax thesurface with at least four coats of car wax if not something better and do yourlay up and then put the foam on top of that and weight it down the way that wedid but if you want two good sides and nice and shiny you can go ahead and dolay up on top of that and then take another piece of plastic laminate lay iton top of course after shining it up with a about four or five coats ofautomotive wax then put a thick piece of flat plywood on top of that Formica tohelp distribute the load evenly and then weight it down and I think that willhelp to squish out any excess resin and make for a stronger product and alsogive you a nice finish on top if you're gonna be doing some laminating on thatupper surface of course just like what Hayden showed us you just put peel plyon top and that'll make it nice and flat and you can also still take a piece ofFormica on top then put a thick piece of flat plywood on top of that Formica tohelp distribute the load evenly and weight that down on top of the peel plyto get a little squishy effect and squeeze out in the excess resin that wayas well either way I think it's going to come out pretty darn strong and it's anice way to do it at home I think these homemade foam core panelsare very good for cosmetics and partitions but as far as using in a veryhigh stress high strength application you're on your own to figure out thatsuitability now I have to make a template of the floor to transfer on tothe panel I used some corrugated plastic easy to cut although the corrugationsbecause they all run parallel sometimes it's hard to cut the proper straightline to the corrugations hold your knife in a direction that you really don'twant to go clean all of this wax from the layup table often here make surethat there's no speck of it even though I'm going to be sanding thisI don't want to be sanding that wax into the rest of the surface so I'm usingacetone to clean off that wax according to Hayden's directions using a finemetal cutting blade this is pretty easy stuff to cut using 36 grit paper on thesix inch disk sander it makes it easy to fine-tune the cuts and also round offthe edges where it needs it but even 24 grit in this big heavy sander hardlymade a dent in this incredibly strong foam panel that was a big surprise so Ihad to get out the angle grinder with 16 grit paper and finally attacked it with I had to stop every once in a while and check with a straight piece ofaluminum for high spots and then I would mark and attack those high spots withthe 24 grit paper on the heavy disk sander once things we're looking pretty goodthen the big random orbit sander pretty well smoothed things out and gave thebevel that we were looking for the panel has a very nice taper a little more thanan inch a little more than 24 millimeters at its thickest end down toa knife edge at its bottom and then to prepare this panel for installation andtabbing in all that beautiful nice glass smooth shine had to be sanded off 60grit paper was used around the edges where the fiberglass tabbing will go and then 80grit inside the field where it's going to be painted nothing ever seems to fitright the first time so with a little marking and then sanding with a disksander and marking some more and sanding some more about four or five times itwas finally fitting the way it should so then it could be glued and tabbed in butnow we have to sand the floor and sand the sides of this cockpit and geteverything ready for the permanent installation first a good vacuuming andthen a good wipe down with acetone and clean paper towels don't worry aboutwhat the rest of this cockpit looks like all of this work is in anticipation ofpainting the entire cockpit a little later on so then I mixed up a big batchof epoxy resin thicken it up with cabosil and then spread it around likebutter all over the cockpit floor where this new panel is going to sit andespecially around the edges to help seal that up and get that ready for thetabbing this was just the start of the weights placed on this floor to helphold it down overnight bricks concrete all kinds of things were set in here togive it a lot of pressure so the next step was to thicken up some epoxy withsome easiest to sand filler make a fillit and then sand it so it'll be a nicecurved section for the fiberglass cloth we'll easily fold in around these edgesand then it has to be sanded and fared and then on and on and on.

These drum Sanders in the drillmade it a lot easier to get that curved surface all the way around the perimeterof the floor finally after a lot of sanding and fairing and cleaning I couldlay in two layers of lightweight cloth the first one was two and a half incheswide and the second layer would be four inches wide to fold in nicely around allof these curved surfaces and of course using epoxy resin so I mixed up 300grams of resin with slow hardener and that's a lot of resin but I worked justas quickly as I could I got the two layers of glass downstarted getting the peel ply in place and I could see oh no I'm losing thewar because the resin just went off on me and so I didn't get the peel plyas saturated as I really felt I needed to but what else can you do so we'll seewhat happens when we pull it up certainly there's going to be somefairing after all this is done oh how nice it's going to take some sanding andsome fairing but still not nearly as much work as like in the old days whenwe had to do a lot of sanding and a lot of fairing this peel ply is amazingstuff and saves a lot of work and out here in the middle it's so much betternow to have everything already completed that was done in the shop and havingthis panel pre-made for me rather than me fiberglassing all this Center areaand sanding and fairing it has saved me days of work and a lot of valuablelabour time with two-part primer and then two-part white paint oh it's sohard not to keep going with that white paint roller on the rest of thecockpit but it's day we'll be coming for the final coat on the walking surfacesof this cockpit floor I mixed up a little fine sand in the paint and thenrolled that around so I think we're in pretty good shape now certainly our feetare going to say a lot drier on that forward end of the cockpit If you like the video give us a thumbs up, a comment down below, leave a tip in the tip jar, and share this with all your friends!.

Prevent DVT On Long Flights | Exercises To Prevent DVT | DVT Flight Socks | Reduce DVT Risk (2018)

ok, interesting fact over 300 million people travel on long-distance flights every year now that's a flight that's generally over four hours long blood clots are also called deep vein thrombosis or DVT for short and it can be a serious risk for some long-distance travelers now in this week's

video I've done some research into the best ways to help reduce your risk of developing a DVT whilst traveling so let's begin so a DVT is a clot that forms in a deep vein and it's usually in the leg serious health problems can occur from DVTs so what

can happen is parts of blood clot can break off travel to the lungs and cause a blockage which we call a pulmonary embolism the risk of developing a DVT from travel is quite small though and research shows there's 1 DVT per 4656 flights that last four hours or

more and the good news is there's loads of things that you can do to help reduce your risk so let's begin firstly compression stockings now these are probably the easiest things you can wear to help reduce your risk of a DVT theyalso help reduce swelling in your ankles

and your legs and we call that an oedemain the medical world now the compression stocking that you need is the class onestocking and class basically means how much pressure it puts on your leg classone has the least pressure so it's the easiest to wear really and it'ssufficient it's

good at what it does it's fine and it helps to prevent a DVTthe length that you need is below knee okay there's a thigh length one as well butit's really long and you don't really need to wear it below kneeclass one the most important thing about these stockings

is that they fitcorrectly and you wear them properly okay, in terms ofwearing them read the box read the information leaflet that comes with iton how to wear them so you're doing it right but in terms of fitting properlyI'd highly recommend everyone to visit their local pharmacy so they

can measureyour legs for you and pick the right size that's suitable for you now theymight not have it in stock they might have to order it in but it's definitelyworth it because if it doesn't fit right it's notgonna work and it's a waste of money remember though compression

stockingsdon't replace the fact that you still need to remain active and do thingswhilst you're on the flight now let's move on to those go for a walk up anddown the aisles every hour or so when the seat belt signs are switched off ifyou can do it more often

that's even better every half hour or soyou can do these mini exercises while seated foot pumps lifts toes withfeet on the floor then lift your heels and continue doing this for 30 secondsknee lifts lift your legs to your chest with your knees bent alternate your legsand repeat 20

to 30 times ankle circles lift your feet and draw a circlewith your toes towards then away from each otherfor 30 seconds drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration and don't drink toomuch alcohol either as it can dehydrate you and cause immobility my last tip isto wear loose comfortable

clothes whilst traveling so basically don't wear what I'mwearing and also avoid taking sleeping tablets because if you're asleep for thewhole flight you're not going to be able to exercise you're not going to beable to stay hydrated and it's not going to help you prevent having a DVT and

that's it you now know how to reduce your risk of getting a DVT whilsttraveling long journeys and if you have any tips for everyone else on how toreduce their risk of getting a DVT as well then leave a comment belowI'd love to read it as well it's also

worth mentioning that certain medicalconditions can increase your chances of developing a DVT on long flights ofeight hours or more so I've left the full list in the description below checkit out and if you or someone in your family falls into those groups then it'sreally important to speak to

your GP before you travel lastly and I promise this isthe last point it's also really important and useful to know thesymptoms of DVT and pulmonary embolism so I've left them in the descriptionbelow please read it and that's it finished have a great flight hey guysthanks for watching this

Come scegliere una GRIP SOCKS | Equipment

D: Hi guys i’m Davide and today we are going to talk about one of the most popular setup in a footballer.

D: But First present to you the inevitable Borriellone who will talk with us about this topic.

D: today we will talk about the main brands producing technical soccer shoes, the “grip” socks S: surely it is a very important theme for those who play football D: Absolutely now the use of the standard soccer sock is a bit outdated S: Of course those who do not play professional is led to have a low-level sock, so look for a solution that improves comfort D: In fact, it is interesting to understand why so many professionals use a “grip sock” compared to the stockings supplied D: As I deepened some time ago the topic “why footballers pierce the socks” and “how footballers cut socks” (one of the brands we analyze today offers a complete package on this theme) D: today we will analyze all types of socks S: in fact brands like nike and adidas currently provide the top clubs with “cut” socks to allow you to use this type of sock D: the main brands for grip socks are: SoxPro, TapeDesign, Trusox and Pdx.

S: we start from Trusox because it is the brand that started this type of setup in wearing football socks D: Trusox has two versions available, the thinner “thin” (which I did not particularly like) and the “cushioning” version which is more thick S: So you (and maybe who is in vision) do you think the thinner version is worse than the thicker one? D: Yes, I prefer a little bit of thickness in the socks with grip to not have too much the feeling of “paper” under your feet D: in fact I had found a comparison with much better socks like Tape Design or Sox Pro, more thickened S: Everything is subjective.

For example, I prefer a thinner and not very thick grip sock, just because I want to feel good grip with the playing shoe.

S: As we always say with Davide, it is important to put your needs first, so there will never be a better product, but the best for you S: for example I tried the Trusox Cushioning and I did not get well because “ate” a measure in my shoes and I had to take bigger ones D: personally, when the stocking is thicker I feel safer.

A psychological factor also .

.

.

S: Of course we can discuss subjective things or not, but there are some objective aspects, sure to be addressed D: i started with Trusox and after to Tape Design and for me it was a step forward.

.

S: You know that for me (i’m joking) Tape Design are sock like when you are babies and the floor is warning… D: Surely one thing we want to tell you is that to give a judgment on a stocking of this type, you need a constant and constant use, so as to have all the answers S: in fact, another important aspect is washing.

Remember that the sock must last over time and maintain its qualities after many washes D: After Tape Design (which at the time I thought was the best) I tried Sox Pro which surprised me positively S: Let's say that, even in my opinion, between the two socks that do not have the internal Grip, but only external, Sox Pro seems even better to me S: So, let's look carefully at the details of the internal grip or not together.

S: Pdx Perfect has a soft internal and external grip, along the whole plant and also the heel, if you have even “mid” shoes the grip will come up to the top.

S: This is definitely one of the strengths of the product S: The same concept for the Trusox, with the difference (and it may or may not) that the type of grip is identical for both the exterior and the interior.

It can be a bit “stiff” .

.

.

S: It must be said in addition to before, that in relation to the price, Trusox is worn very quickly and loses its initial softness a lot.

D: They really cost too much .

.

.

D: in fact, in my previous review I pointed out that there was a good grip, but with less comfort S: This is why my net preference definitely goes to Pdx, as well as for the lower cost (€ 25 against over € 35) also for production in Italy and the fact that the socks remain soft for a long time D: back to Sox Pro, in the interior we have no grip, we can measure it only in the comfort of the material.

D: Designed in Italy, the production is China.

even Tape Design is Danish as a proven .

.

.

S: The socks obviously come from different parts of the world, but we want to focus on the products themselves and not their commercialization D: Giving a personal opinion, I can say what I think is the best (assuming that I could not try Pdx thoroughly, I will try to do it as soon as possible) D: Between Trusox, Tape Design, Sox Pro, I prefer Sox Pro.

S: for the needs you mentioned, it makes sense! S: Having thoroughly tested all the socks (Tape Design not so thoroughly, but because it does not reflect my needs), I definitely say Pdx Perfect.

S: this because for the type of yarn of which the sock is composed, and above all a great grip without an excessive thickness, it perfectly meets my needs D: We know well that the softness of a sock, to the touch, counts.

Then you have to see in the field during use if this reflects your needs S: certainly if I thought I had to work out, Sox Pro would use it safely, I prefer something different in the field D: Then you have to understand how these socks are worn .

.

.

S: Certainly the advice that I can give is to try them all and decide the best for you .

.

.

D: Sure! As you have an opinion and a choice when we talk about shoes, the same goes for socks D: we also want to show you how one of these brands gives the “package” complete with sock and sock already “cut” S: We use orange but you can use the color of your club S: important to say that when you play an official match you should use the sock under the same color of the sock S: So you wear your Pdx first (in this case) and then after putting the shin and all, wear this sleeve that you can place as you like best D: It looks like a pair of compression stockings similar to leg warmers D: also because the alternative you have is to brutally cut the stocking of your suit, however questionable choice and that needs tapes and anything else S: and neither does it swell up if you blow in .

.

.

D: laugh….

S: for example since I was a child I suffered from cramps (tell us in the comments below your needs and experiences .

.

) D: absolutely write us doubts or curiosities related to each of these stockings and how you organize yourself D: so let us know everything below in the comments, which product you like and why! S: For me it is very interesting the topic of the sleeves, as I have always hated scotch and tape to have to put and everything.

Now it is much more immediate and convenient D: I think we said everything there was to say about this exciting topic D: we have analyzed in detail all the grip socks products of the market and find all the individual reviews on the channel S: Do not worry about writing us in direct on instagram in addition to the comments below as already said D: As usual put like and comment below with all you wants to know about this video and other curiosity about world of football boots.

88 when I boughtthem at Walmart that's kind of expensive I think for one pair of socks but theseare really really thick if you remember the original Huggle it has this fleecelining well that's very similar to what this is these actually feel a littlenicer now the Huggle here has been washed a few times so maybe that's thedifference these socks do say they're gonna be soft and fluffy many many timeseven after you wash them though there look at that I got the Huggle logo righthere on the bottom I'm soft warm cozy so what we need to do now is we actuallyneed to try them on and well let's see if these little feet grippers actuallywork they say this is one size fits all and if you have smaller feet you justroll down the cuff I guess I don't know what you do if youhave bigger feet these don't these look like maybe they'll fit me but I'm notsure so let's go try them on and see what we got alreadyand then I'm struggling to get the other one on this is what they look like I'llstraighten this out a little on my feet now I do have a size 12 and a half footso maybe these aren't meant for me I do like however the grippy foot on thebottom I feel like this is going to give you lots of traction almost like arubbery feel they are pretty tight coming around my foot yet again thatcould be just because I have pretty big feet I do like that you can roll this upor roll it down this fleece material goes throughout the entire sock so it'sdefinitely gonna keep me warm I wonder if I sweat after a while but this is myfirst look at these I like them I think they're pretty decent especially if youget cold in the winter or those cold fall nights these will be great socks toadd to your collection so these are machine washable so I'm gonna throw themin here to the wash load I'm gonna throw some towels in here so I'm not tooworried about reason I say that is when I wash the Huggle for the first timethat white fleece stuff got over everything so I'm gonna put some towelsin there for if it gets fleece on I don't really care but I'm gonna check tosee what this looks like after I wash and dry them if you liked this video sofar this is a perfect time to hit that thumbs up button down below I appreciatethe support let's see what these look like after they are washed so I justtook these out of the dryer and they're still a little warm I was impressed tosee that you know what they still look good this cable-knit style what theyhave didn't have any tears the fleece that's here still looks good there mightbe little pieces from the towels or whatever else in there but they came offreal quick I was really impressed to see even the silicone base so the anti slipbase was still there and in tact I was pretty impressed now Ialready I already mentioned the price but I want to talk with that again it'sabout thirteen dollars for one pair of socks let me know in the comment sectionbelow do you think that's a little high see I kind of think it's at the higherend of the price point and you might want to wait a month or two when theseget cut in half at least in price I know Walmart tends to do that after about amonth so let me know in the comment section what you think about the priceof these socks now if you remember back to when I had them on they were kind oftight and snug on me even though it says one size fits all now I do have a sizetwelve and a half foot and my wife will probably be the one utilizing these butif you have a larger foot just know that these probably won't work for you theywere soft they were comfortable they are warm but definitely not for people withlarger feet I didn't show this before but I I did like this fleece lining goesall the way through the sock so it will keep you warm and now that I look at itit looks kind of like one of those mints that you can clean the outside of yourcar with so hey if you can't use it for socks you at least got an extra thing toclean your car this was Jeff with Jeff reviews for you and that was my reviewof the Huggle socks or the Huggle slipper socks if you remember earlier onin this video I was wearing the actual Huggle a review I did not so long agomake sure you're logged in because I'm gonna link it right up here in just aminute so you can go check out that review if you hadn't already seen itactually if you already seen it go watch it again it's something but I'm gonnalink right up here so hey I'll see you right up here at that review you'llclick on it.
