Entertainment Kit; Part the 2nd (knitting 1st)


« Red Rover | Main | Bugs »


Anecdotally, I find women "run colder" then men - I love my hand knit wool socks but can't wear them until the temperature drops to about freezing. So usually I knit socks in a fingering weight cotton blend (JaWoll Cotton Colors fr'instance). It's good stuff, but there's just a lot less cotton-wool blend sock yarn out there and the woolier stuff is more tempting!

  • Socks that house knit
    I am a sock machine. Not that I churn them out, no, but in the way I wear them, multiple pairs at a time when on location, with toe warmers. Love me some wind chill. Warm ankles go a long way towards happiness.

    Sometimes they're drawn or painted. Sometimes they're 3-d and scrunchy. They belong on the ground and are made to play with.
