If socks are your thing, these simple smocked socks (say that five times fast) will be at the top of your queue. The Tightrope Socks are kinda like their namesake - while it's best to clear your mind and don't look down!, you still need to pay attention!

Ive been a licensed massage therapist, a yarn dyer for a small hand-dyed yarn company, and spent many years as an office slave. As previously noted, I compulsively knit, design and spin in my free time. If Im not doing any of the above, you can find me playing music in the band Shalloboi, in which I sing and play drums.
