If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?
I guess socks aren’t really lingerie nor as enticing as fish-net hose, but these Valentine socks are warmer. Since snow is blowing horizontally this morning, warmer seems like a good idea. The February Socks from …and a time to knit stockings use both stranded knitting and a dab of lace knitting — simple yarn overs and knit two togethers. Since lace spreads more than stranded knitting, it is best worked on smaller needles. The decorative cast on is longtail using red and white. The ends of the yarn are twisted into a little pig tail.

I think any foot in this sock would want to dance. I feel encouraged to hear of your return to a handwork project started 20 years ago! Just yesterday I picked up a basket containing a cross stitch piece I started nearly 20 years ago, and wondered if I could possibly finish it. The yarns I started it with were bought in Jakarta and I am not likely to match them if I needed, but I want to have a go at it. There is something about finishing something I have started that seems important…
