|Crankings from an Antique Sock Knitter ✜ by Karen Lengyeltoti | Mr. Toe'd shop |
Feeling lucky to be wearin' my special socks… 2014 edition. The artisan was a bit puzzled by my request to make them non-matching, but cheerfully obliged—making my bespoke socks on her antique sock-knitting machine, probably much like one I admired at a Shaker museum in New Hampshire a few years back..
And just look at her incredible weavings.
Luckily I have her business card and her email address and when I save enough cold hard cash to buy some, I will. (Just don't tell my husband I'm plotting to purchase 40 dollar towels).
Luckily he never reads my blog.
