What am I knitting?

April 10, 2013

EgyptianSocks

Thanks for HMS Defiant for this reference about Romano-Egyptian socks.  He watches me knitting and sent this delightful story along.

I am a sock knitter and one of the nice things about knitting your own is that you can tailor them to the recipient – color, length in all dimensions, weight.

However, I have never had to adjust my knitting to accommodate the apparently stork-footed (see there are storks again) individual for whom these socks were made.

Another note is that the story talks about single-needle knitting.  I always thought that was crochet – ?

Here’s the story.
