a girl needs a good, practical pair of socks


The spring issue of knitty is out and it is rockstar! I want to do morestripes, only not striped; monica for little evelyn, but for when she is older; the little vestie for a little baby; the stylish and oh so lovely paper bag; and my ultimate dream: the clessidra socks. They are so gorgeous. I have never made socks before, but I have been thinking about making a pair for some time now. I want to make knee socks and these bad boys would offer quite the challenge. I have to say they are rather intimidating but so, so pretty. I think I may just have to go for it.

Nancy always says you should have at least three to five projects going at a time.
