Saw this on Mental Floss.

Good Actresses in Bad Horror Movies

Score: 40% (4 out of 10)

Think you can do better?

Saw these on my feet.

I love knee socks. Unreasonably. Love.
Pattern is "Evening Stockings for a Young Lady" in Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush. I used Knit Picks Essential sock yarn. Pattern called for 3 skeins, but I used one for each sock with less than a meter left over, even with the extra inch I added to the leg. So I have one skein left to play with sometime.

I know there are more knee socks in my future.

Ohmigosh! Lara, those socks are GORGEOUS! I've gotta make me some...Meems and I love kneesocks, too! Thanks for posting this - I've got her book - I've just never gotten around to making anything out of it, for some reason. Silly ME!

LOVE the socks! I'm totally into knee socks this year - they keep me so much warmer. Mine are not nearly as nice as yours, though.

wow. Those are beautiful! I have that book... but didn't realize how lovely they were until your post. Another must knit for another knee-sock lover ;)

Love knee socks. How do you ever keep them up? Elastic?
