Does this help? A little confection for the feet…a pair of flippant.
Have you ever been annoyed at how flip flops or sandals hurt between your toes! Annoying is an understatement…just last week, I walked barefoot on hot cement around town…THANKS, Silvia, for such a timely genius creation. This lacy flippant, not only adorable and comfy, is the solution to my aching problem. I can’t wait to show them off! One slight challenge: It would have to wait ’til I knit myself another pair first as my 12-year-old decided they are perfect for her feet!

A delightful evening spent showing my 12-year-old the rope of knitting socks on a magic loop, cuff down. So far, she managed to do German Twisted Cast-on and ribbed Cuff (Knit 1 Purl 1)…what an ambitious and adventurous (and very impatient) gal!
