Socks

We all need socks, right?  Well, it occurred to me today that not everyone out is aware of the most fabulous place to buy socks EVER.

I am, of course, speaking of Sock Dreams.

Literally any sort of socks, leg warmers, or gloves you might desire are available on this site.  Really.  I’m not exaggerating!

You still think I’m exaggerating, don’t you?  Well okay then!  Here’s a very small sampling from their stock of literally hundreds (if not thousands!) of items.

Striped toe socks:

Fishnet knee highs.  (I’m so getting a pair of these!)

Over-the-knee socks.  These are purely fabulous for wearing under skirts on cold winter days.  And if the skirt’s long, and you’re wearing boots, feel free to get wild with the patterns and colors – when it’s grey out, we need a little color!

And if your skirt’s not long, or you’re not brave, they also come in plain colors.  In everything from light cotton to the most gorgeous soft and warm Angora.

These are my current favorites, that I only just discovered while I was looking for pictures to post here.   Stripes!  Pirates!  Yay!

And speaking of pirates, here’s one of their fingerless gloves.  I love fingerless gloves.  There is no sexier hand-wear…especially when it looks like this! I want these!  Want, want, want!!!

Ever wanted a pair of pantyhose with separate toes?  No?  Well, if you ever do, you’ll know where to go!

The socks come in every imaginable color and print…from stars & stripes….

And the truly thrilling part is that no matter whether you want one $3 pair of anklets, or twenty pairs of over-the-knee socks, shipping is always FREE.

Whether you’re looking for a costume accessory or just a wonderful pair of cozy socks, there’s only one place you need to go!

Oh.  And they also sell sock garters, garter belts, puffy crinoline skirts, skin glue, and a number of other odd and wonderful things.

Fingerless Mitts and Etsy’s Alchemy

I’m dying for a pair of these:

Fingerless grey gloves, with a thumb gusset!

And better still, since I don’t knit, I found someone to make them for me. On Etsy.com, they have a thing they call “Alchemy”. Anyone who wants a particular thing, or even an unparticular thing, can describe what they want, and how much they want to pay for it, and handcrafters all over the world will bid for the chance to make it for you.

So I posted an add on Alchemy for these mitts, and got perhaps 10 responses, but one reponse stood out. Way out. This lady actually scoured the net looking for wool yarn of just the right color and weight, and when she was unable to find it, she offered to spin me matching wool with her own hands. How incredibly awesome is that? Of course it would have cost more for her additional time, and I decided not to take her up on that offer, but I did commission her to knit my gloves from the best match she could locate. If you ever want a knitted object, here’s the lady you want to go to:
