Back into knitting socks ... Three years now and I'm afraid I do not remember everything, though I remember the starting stitches. The pattern is a free one from Ravelry, Lace Socks by Gerdine Crawford-Strong. Actually I only used the lace pattern, not the socks design itself. I am knitting exactly a copy of what I had with my first socks project. Enjoyed using it and the pair is still in great shape.

An Iraqi girl stands on former marshland, drained in the 1990s because of poltically motivated water policies ~ Φοτο Essam Al-Sudani
Marsh Arabs and the very interesting stories behind ... How a heaven is turned into hell. Read the story in three sections here and learn about Mustarjil; gender in the Marshes. Interesting!

This shoe is designed by Joseph Gerger but is closely related to Frida Kahlo. Frida continues to inspire artists; this time a fashion designer Susanne Bisovsky. Check her webpage to see ( I and II ) some wonderful creations with a chic folkloric touch.
I must confess, my eyes were totally attracted to the background decor more than anything else. Dizzy with the richness and colors of my favorite pastime; antique needlepoint!
