Last week saw the first of the series of storms that usually brings our cold weather on, and it was so lovely to wear boots for the first time in a long time. The only thing that could make it better was the addition of hand-knit socks inside the boots.
I have a whole drawer (albeit a small drawer) full of handknit socks, some that rarely get worn, and I’ve come to the conclusion that my sock knitting should be for other people. At least for a little while. I’m making the dude a pair of striped socks, and meanwhile I’m coveting yarns from gynx and Spun Right Round for imaginary pairs to grace the feet of the people I love.
I also ran across this stunning sock again on Ravelry today and wanted very much to cast on a pair for myself even though I have 3 WIPs on the needles right now, and entirely too much to knit before Christmas.
