In an earlier post I mentioned that I had ordered some transparent Converse sneakers...just what every sock knitter should have in his/her wardrobe. Well, during the heat of battle-they arrived. I wore them to work last week to show off my Serendipity Socks. The shoes were comfortable & transparent, as promised!
Another recent knitting related purchase that you might find interesting is a tin bank that I found when shopping at Vroman's for wrapping paper and cards for my Sock War victims(past and future).
