I'm still obsessed with the idea of how much fun we knitters can have with our handknit socks! So, dear readers, I am challenging you to come up with funky, beautiful, garish, sublime shoe and sock combos. Post a link in my comments. C'mon, it'll be fun! If I get enough I'll start a gallery.
Here's mine, in honor of DS, my funky bass player, I submit my funky/garish sock-shoe combo.
I made these socks last year. They are my own pattern, in Trekking. They are still one of my favorite pairs.
I've joined Rhinebeck Bingo. This is going to be fun. If you are going to Rinebeck, check it out.
A week or so ago Devorah asked me to show a picture of what I bought a Purl Fabrics. I've been a little remiss in getting this done, so here it is. I was pretty restrained, for me that is. Only four pieces. I'm planning on making a tote with the Japanese inspired floral and lining it with the brown calico. The other two, with the dots, are something we are thinking about for DD #1's new room. She and her twin sister are making plans to have separate rooms. (They still love each other, just need more space.)
