Rockin’ Your Stockins’: Cute and Cabled!

September 17, 2015

Do you love the look of over-the-knee socks but are a new knitter or DPN (double pointed needle) impaired?

No Need to knit in the round…

Work these beautiful cabled stockings flat on two needles then kitchener a seam up the back! Knit in sport-weight wool, these beauties will keep you cozy through fall and winter.

Here’s the pattern for just $6.75:

Yarn is here.

Cabled Two-Needle stockings



Vintage Fashionista

December 24, 2008

It’s been a year since my mom passed and we all  miss her terribly, especially at this time of year. But I had to smile at some of the photos that my brother scanned and sent me recently.

Mom did love her fashion and the 40’s was ( in my opinion ) the best decade in the 20th century for women’s styles.

So in honor of  Mrs. White,  I’d like to share some of her wartime vintage chic .  

ETA:  To satisfy the curious, most of these photos were taken in San Francisco, on or about Alabama Street where Mom’s family lived.  The last photo was taken in Yosemite, where you can see Half-Dome in the background.


I love you, mom.
