Hey, I had to share this Style feature with you; socks with fancy shoes are all the rage. And this was in Family Circle, not Vogue, so it's aimed at real people. Handknit socks must be driving this trend!
I can think of a couple of candidates for trying this style:
In the Clover Socks, by Jane Prater of JPKnits. Check out that Balbriggan Heel! I'd love to try these myself to get the hang of that cool technique.
Jane's giving away three Pattern Collections on her blog, Merely a Suggestion, today, so click on over for a chance to win.
And we're rich in giveaways today! Besides the Merely a Suggestion blog, you've a chance to win Pattern Collections, Year-long Pattern Collection Subscriptions and luxury yarns.
