I can’t believe I did a post about things that make me want to make socks and left out the photo above, which comes from the No.6 blog. I can’t even tell you how many times I have looked at this image in the past week or two. I want the clogs desperately — No.6 Old School Clog on Mid Wedge in Desert. (I recite that phrase in my sleep.) (Have I told you my childhood clogs sob story?) But — and I can’t believe I’m saying this — I want to wear them with sweet little footie socks. Handmade, of course. I have an ultra chic, super petite, Japanese floral designer neighbor who wears little colored socklets with pointy flats, so you just barely see the edges of the socks poking out. The idea of a hipster/hippie clog variation on her look amuses me greatly.
Good footie sock patterns, anyone?
I’ve yet to knit them, but the Purl Bee has a great footie/peds pattern here: http://www.purlbee.com/sporty-striped-peds/. I imagine you could do all sorts of color mods with these, including a contrast heel like in the photo above!
Oh, I forgot about that one — perfect!
These are in my favorites on Ravelry. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/laylas-socks
The images aren’t loading on the Tosh page for that, and I’m not sure I’m interpreting correctly (reading in a bit of a hurry). Do they stop short of a heel — just covering the foot and toes? I keep thinking I need something like that for my loafers. The store-bought ones I have aren’t warm enough for my studio.
For a cute peak out of a full clog, try Churchmouse Yarns Turkish Bed Socks.
I have that pattern and was that image flickered through my head when I was posting this one. I still need to make those bed socks — love them.
I just realized this photo is a bit reminiscent of the Jenny Gordy shot I used on the first Blog Crush: http://fringeassociation.com/2012/01/06/blog-crush-wiksten-jenny-gordy/
you’ve inspired me to try & find my vintage pattern booklets of sock patterns… usually i get one sock done & the other gets forgotten
I want to see these vintage pattern booklets!
Trust Purl Bee to come out with another cute anklet pattern (in neon, no less!): http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fishnet-anklets
or this one…also from the purl bee http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/pom-pom-peds (maybe without the pom-pom?)
I don’t think I could wear the pompoms on my socks. (Did it as a little kid, though.) But yes to the socks.
We have been using the Churchmouse Turkish Bed Socks in the new Shibui multi sock colors like 50’s Kitchen, Roppongi, Spectrum and Orchid. May we suggest checking out Phydeaux Designs sock yarns too! Brenda has some fantastic colors to choose from.
I’ll take a look! Thanks, Cheryl.
