Course the new Knitty just came out, and what do my wondering eyes appear?
Lovely Kilt Hose. In case you're wondering, they aren't for my dear husband - I don't think any amount of cajoling would get him into a kilt. I, on the other hand, do have a kilt - not a traditional one - but a Utilikilt - I love it. And it goes great with my a** kickin boots:

German Stockings by Cookie A. While these stockings are great, the boots are going to hide a good portion of them, and might muck em up a bit where the tops of the boots are - so perhaps I'm better off with the Kilt Hose - they look simple and straightforward - and even better? They are knit from worsted weight yarn. Can you say speedy stockings?
