I did indeed finish the first of these socks last night, yay! The thing is, they fit me better than any socks I’ve ever made for myself. Do I have to give them away? Of course I will, but I might make some for myself at some point.
I did manage to take it off, and my feet are back in their fuzzy feet. Cozy, but not quite so stylish.
(I will wash these socks before I post them to my aunt, don’t worry)
Oh and to everyone who has asked where I got the pattern for Snow White from. I’d love to be able to send you a link, but at the moment it’s in my head, and not quite all worked out. Sorry if I wasn’t very clear that it’s my own design. The pattern is coming though. I just need to knit this second version to check that all the changes I’ve made work out.? I’m delighted that you’re interested though.
Introducing the first in an ongoing series of guest posts. I'm honoured that we're beginning with this vital letter from Emi Ito.
Emi has been outspoken about the cultural appropriation of the kimono in fashion and has helped many makers and designers find a less hurtful approach to naming their patterns and products.
