twiddletoes: tabi socks and luxury footwear featured Handmade Artists Forum May 15th through 22nd

twiddletoes was created about six years ago after cringing over people shoving their flipflops on over their regular socks. I started off knitting them for the biggest offenders in my life -- my dad and my husband -- but quickly expanded when I realized that there was quite a bit of interest in my tabi. From there, I took my wares to craft shows and festivals.

How many times have you wished you had socks on when you were wearing flip flops?  I am sure you have had cold feet in the wrong shoes a few times, I know I have!  Trying to force a socked foot into a thong shoe is no great fun, I know.

This is a great idea and the workmanship in twiddletoes socks looks great, and she does use the best materials.  Another great thing is that if you are a traditionalist and want to wear regular socks with your sandals, you can find beautiful handmade socks at this shop as well like perhaps:
 but Ladies and Gents, these are the ones to seriously consider!
I am so tempted, maybe the mosquitoes here in Florida wont bite my toes if I wear these socks!
