Yoga Socks

Back between the age of dinosaurs and the 1980's, I took many a jazz and modern dance class.  We weren't allowed to wear socks in class. Those would be way too slippery for the waxed dance floors.  Most of us had regular tights, and had to cut the toes and heels out of them.  But then stirrup tights came around, and those looked a lot nicer. So when I ran across a free pattern for yoga socks at a store, I was intrigued.  Those sure brought back some happy memories. So I of course want to design my own yoga socks. So I looked it up on Google, and evidently a lot of people know about yoga socks. I guess you wear them for Pilates too.  I haven't had an official yoga class in years so I guess I'm out of the loop.

My daughter was taking yoga during her pregnancy. Maybe she'd appreciate a pair of hand knit or crocheted yoga socks.

My New Sewing Buddy

Yesterday on Etsy I found myself a sewing buddy. She may live on the East coast while I live in California, but we can still cheer each other on via Facebook, Etsy and our blogs. As soon as she gives me her blog address I'll share it so you can see her awesome sewing skills. I just don't know how she does all that as well as working full time.

I have tons of sewing to do. I have to get some of it done, because it's taking up so much space in my apartment.

Here is a snood I just finished. I already got it listed on Etsy.
