i love clogs.
i have for awhile now.
the weight of the shoe itself makes me feel substantial,
a force to be reckoned with.
another, more crazy, truth is that i am only recently
discovering the joy of wearing hand knit socks.
(perhaps a lasting bout
of second sock syndrome)
but now i’m all in.
with hand knit socks in the drawers,
i wanted to pair them with clogs and slides.
alas, heels are functional
and not often the pretty part of the sock.
since what i wanted didn’t match up with what i found,
garter stitch runs
from the cuff
through the heel flap
with a back center column
of paired knit stitches.
the remainder of the sock
is straight up stockinette.
its opposite is the boho version:
mainly reverse stockinette stitch with a column of garter stitch
dividing two wide vertical stripes of stockinette stitch up the back.
how all that reverse stockinette stitch gives these socks
a sort of ‘princess sole’.
all i know is that they feel good this way,
and that’s what i wanted.
the imp socks are featured today
on the blog of my favorite local yarn shop, ‘in the loop’.
if i could give you anything knit related, i’d give you a lys as supportive as they are.
