Hey everyone,

I went on vacation and made these socks:



and have seen these things in the local museum. They weren't clearly labeled so I can only state that the date was XIX century.




Also, I was sitting next to a knitter on one flight and we had a lovely chat :)

Those socks are so pretty! They look lovely with the dress, too. :teehee:

It's amazing how far knitting as come and yet so similar to old times. Cool pix!

Very cute socks and thanks for the photos too. How neat to see how previous centuries spun their wool. I imagine back then socks, sweaters and such were pretty darn scratchy being wool, washed in lye soap etc. Thank you technology!!!!! :)

Your kids have the best-dressed feet! I bet they love their mom-made socks!!!

Thanks for the pictures from your vacation. I enjoyed seeing them. And hooray for the chance to talk to another knitter for an entire flight!!
