Caspian Sea Sample Sock, Growing

My little project from Ethnic Socks and Stockings is growing. Very slowly, but growing.

Can you see why this delights me so much? This is pure beauty. The sock will fit nobody I know, it is totally a learning experience and a joy in the making.

I have no cultural claim to eastern-style anything. My brother, the genealogist in our family, says my family-tree traced heritage comes mostly from Norway and Sweden, plus a few places in the UK.

However, I was born for colorful anything. My first memory at age 2, was of a blue and yellow toy I was denied at the home of friends. It wasn’t the denial that made me remember, but the beauty of the colors in concentric rings.

This sock is not denying me anything. I can not knit it when in a group of people, which is where I do the bulk of my knitting. Instead, this is pushing me toward a little quiet knitting time at home. This is good for me.

Off to knit a little bit more…

    The Norwegians make some colorful and intracate designs. Great Aunt Ingeborg made some things. The stores over there had many nice knit things. Icelandic sweaters were in modern designs when I was in the Scandinavian countries. Your sock looks like it is a real intense project. You will enjoy the finished project.
