Nifty "Big Girl Socks"
1954 Big Girl Socks. I was originally looking for a pattern for a vintage fisherman's sweater, but Google took me to socks--go figure-- and these are just, well, nifty. I am planning to finish the maple socks next week (Spring Break cometh in 4 days!), so these are next on my project list. Wouldn't you know it, I am going to have to go yarn shopping. I have no solid colors left in my stash, and I don't think a variegated would do the trick. I could wait to shop until I go to the Knitting Universe convention in Marietta, GA on April 24th, but I will be done with the maple socks next week and then I will be fussing to start this pattern. And Knitpicks.com is having a sock yarn sale with "new spring colors!", so these socks must just be fate. Who can pass up a yarn sale? I guess that Apple Socks pattern that I found yesterday and fell in love with is going on the back burner. So many socks to make, so little time! And I probably should be grading some papers instead of blogging--I'm trying to feel guilty that I'm not doing my homework, but nothing's happening. And the night is still young, and there is knitting to do. A woman must maintain her priorities, English teacher or no.
