I’m not exactly sure why, but socks have really been on my mind lately. Maybe it’s the cold weather. And I just ran into a link for an article about darning socks from a completely non-knitting related site.
So when the Spring 2012 issue of Sockupied arrived, I wasn’t surprised. But I was delighted to see the L.J. Kaelms highlighted in the “Must-Have Supplies for Socks.”
If you haven’t checked out Sockupied, you can get it here. There’s some great stuff in there. Remember our Knitter Profile about Donna Druchunas? She wrote a great article about Balkan textiles: Did you know the shoes were so flimsy they wore two pairs of socks? They’re so beautiful and intricate, I don’t know how they could bear to cover them up!
(She also raves about her L.J. Kaelms: “I like it so much that it’s now my go-everywhere travel purse.” Thanks Donna!)
And of course, there are some of the most beautiful patterns for socks, which means if I decide socks are my next project, I’ll have some tough decisions to make.
