dance moves (summer night fever)

the tippy toes

the too cool for school

the gosh darn it I'm going to show off my handknitted socks even if I have to wear highwaters

Can you tell that I'm having way too much fun wearing my new Arne & Carlos Summer Night socks? I am now a total convert to the joyful & calming benefits of knitting vanilla socks. Especially with fun self-patterning yarns like this one. The pattern is my own cuff-down vanilla sock recipe that I'm in the process of fine-tuning. Still doing research on how to get the best fitting socks for my feet, especially when it comes to the heels and toes. There are so many varieties of both out there to try, but that's half the fun! The weather is simply gorgeous today, so a long tea break accompanied by the latest episode of the Wooly Cakes and Wooden Spoons video podcast as well as some knitting under the cherry blossoms sounds like a perfectly good way to spend the rest of the afternoon :)

  5. Have you tried a star toe? That one fit my MIL well, she has tiny feet. Love the high waters!!! How I dreaded that look whenever my jeans shrunk or I grew! Back in the day, LOL, they didn't do talls for high schoolers who wore a size 14 in kids but had a 32" inseam!
