When Beowulf Knits Socks ...

It might look like this.

I especially like this since I am fighting off the urge to buy a book (darn that book fast) called What Would Madame Defarge Knit? (Edited by Heather Ordover at CraftLit with many original patterns based on classic books).

Thanks to Theocoid for this, who got the link from Mark Shea.

  2. I commissioned a knitting friend of mine to make those for me! :D I cannot WAIT to wear them, especially as I plan to memorize the opening lines of Beowulf in Anglo-Saxon this year.

    Incidentally, if Beowulf interests you, you MUST see Benjamin Bagby's performance of it!! http://www.bagbybeowulf.com/
