Sock LoveA few months ago, news broke about the new Addi Turbo lace knitting needles, you know, the ones with the really sharp tips. My friend Bobby G and I (more like I dragged Bobby G) went to the LYS to gets me a pair of them sharp sharp needles. So, new needle in hand, but nothing to cast on.
Enter sock yarn section.
"Bobby G, would you like a pair of handknit socks?" said I.
Bobby G: "My feet are too wide to knit socks for."
Winnie S: "Oh yes but that is the wonder of handknit socks. You knit to fit."
Ta da! Bobby G, for the first time in his life, has a pair of socks that does not cut off his blood circulation. He is pleased.
And we took the opportunity to showcase our lovely feet together on this fine Saturday afternoon.
