new project: amish socks

a few years ago, i came across a photo in vogue knitting of a pair of wild and crazy-colored socks, reported to be worn underneath the somewhat somber and muted clothing of the amish. i liked the idea that even though no one could see them, some pretty crazy and colorful things were being worn underneath those long skirts.

even though it's in the middle of summer and i'm probably completely crazy for wanting to attempt these at this time, i've finally knit enough (socks, projects in the round, tiny things) that i'm finally putting my own amish sock pattern together. eek! it's very exciting. i'm envisioning crazy things - bright colors, fun design patterns, and textural designs. right now, i have a single half royal blue footie done. posting pictures soon of the progress.
