It was a nice quiet time after New Year. Sun and snow. I took a walk on the beach. People were strolling with prams, and a couple were out having a bath. Now I am recovering from a appendix operation I had the other day.You can´t always knit!!
I finished a pair of socks for my grandchild from Knitting Vintage Socks. When I saw the photo of the pair in the book I thought they were baby boots. However, they turned out to be a perfect boot sock for a toddler in a pair of wellies.
I guess children a hundred years ago wore them in a pair of bootee. Like these little Ellen is wearing. In that case the cuffs probably were placed over the bootlegs and kept the socks in place. A very clever construction, practical and lovely.
