All Appendages Will Be Covered
Here's the first half of my pair of Lacy Arrow Socks. I finished it the other night, and immediately put it on while I started the next one. My feet were cold, so half a pair seemed better than none. It's a larger sock than I usually make, but I wanted it to be really cushy and comfy. The heel is taller than usual, but in making this type of lacy socks before, I have noticed that where the lace stitches end at the top of the heel is a real wear point with some shoes, so I decided to just make the heel taller. I think this will work well.
My title deals with the next photos in conjunction with the sock photo. I love gloves, and have quite a few pair, but it's difficult to find really nice ones, with a great fit. So, when I ran across 3 pairs (!!!) yesterday, in my size even, I bought them immediately. These are all from Italy, in actual sizes not just S/M/L, and gorgeous soft leather with silk lining. The fingers are so nicely shaped, and so different from the Made in China type. The black ones are classic,
as are the pale yellow,
but the Pucci print gloves are simply for fun.
The background of the print is the palest grey-green, and just matches a group of knit coordinates I made a few years ago, and still wear. Anyway, with socks and gloves, all appendages will definitely be covered.
