Kimber, my sample knitter for these socks, lives in Florida with a long haired dachshund named Mo who looks exactly like my former dachsie Anezka. This Spunky Eclectic colorway paired with the stitch pattern reminds me of a crocodile, almost like our long-snouted little dog friends.

(These days when I hear the word ‘crocodile’ I think of the St. Vincent song “Krokodil” which has very dachshund-appropriate lyrics: “I need to bite!”)
