I’m almost to the bind off on my toe up socks, which I knit with Schoppel Wolle Flying Saucer sock yarn. And, for reasons unknown to me, the yarn didn’t do its cool tie dye bit on the leg of the sock, only on the foot.
I waited for it to materialize, I even made it longer than I normally would, but that magic moment never occurred, except for very briefly on the ribbing. It happened on both the leg and foot of my husbands Flying Saucer socks, which I knit top down, so I assumed it would work toe up too, but you know what they say about assume…
And I am sad that the coolest part of the sock will be hidden away in a shoe.
All is not lost, however, as I had a brilliant brainstorm. Wait for it. Clear shoes!
I think this is a highly marketable item for the yarn loving community. We knitters love our socks. We’re proud of our socks. And we want to show them off. What better way than with clear shoes?
There could be different styles; clear loafers for every day work socks, clear ballerina slippers for delicate lace socks, clear ked-type for coordinating laces with socks, and clear boots for cable socks.
And I will be first in line with my Schoppel Wolle Flying Saucer socks.
(If someone does invent this, I would like a percentage of the sales for my creative genius. Or free shoes. Either one.)
