Paul Simon sang about diamonds on the soles of our shoes, and Helene Magnusson writes about diamonds on the insoles of our shoes.
Her book is called Icelandic Knitting: Using Rose Patterns. Originally published in Iceland and only recently available in English, the book explores the history and tradition of the knitted shoe insert. It's a concept only knitters would appreciate: taking great care to create a colorful piece of knitted fabric that nobody else will see.
Lela Nargi tells us more about what we can find inside Helene's book.
