So, back to our
The desire was fueled by necessity. I have tiny feet. Everyone says that. My friends say that. I know it myself. The usual sock patterns can be knit by me, no doubt, but not as socks, or at least not for me. As a cowl, perhaps? There was already someone out there with a brilliant idea to turn the Monkey socks by Cookie A into cowl (hey, why someone else always gets the best ideas?). Of course, I can sit quietly in my corner and jknit my socks with whatever stitches I can find to squeeze into the 56 stitches I have to CO to get around my feet. but I am a teacher, too, you know. I like to teach. I like to share with people. I like to spare them the pain of figuring it out all by themselves if the knowledge is already there. I want to share my patterns. After discussing the issue with the fellow Ravelrers (Ravelers?) I came to the conclusion that we, small-footed people, may be overpowered by the Big Foots (sorry, guys!) but we do exist. And we need socks. For our dainty, tiny, freezing feet!!!!
