I put the edited version of the Teko Sock OR in the Owner Review
folder. You may want to look at it since I added additional
information on the Lin Toe seams. From what I can tell these seams
are common on socks.
Please let me know when the folder is available for me to post the
socks and where I should be posting it to.
