Happy feet…

“In every economical house the knitting basket should be an institution and all the girls should be taught to knit.  Knitted woollen stockings are not only more durable than bought stockings, but they promote the circulation better and so are preventative of cold feet and chilblains.”  from Domestic Economy, 1896

Knitting socks are my favourite project, and because the are perfect travelling companions on the airplane, bus or train.
