Winter has returned to Toronto, and the timing is awfully unfortunate. A lot of folks I care about are spending a lot of time outdoors these days, and it's been awfully wet and chilly! I hope everyone who is out there in the chilly air is wearing warm socks. If my fingers were the fastest, I would make everyone I love a pair of handknit socks. I give a fair number of socks to other people, but I'm also pretty invested in having a solid set of ones to keep my own feet warm. Now that I know the glory of foot-sweaters, I wear them all but the hottest days of the year.
These ones - Barolo - are some of the prettiest socks I have ever seen.
I love the way the pattern flows into ribbing along the leg in a kind of stair-step way. I love the little eyelets, and the anatomical toe. I love everything about these, actually.
The pattern is mirrored, so those of you who really dig symmetry should be pretty stoked on these.
