There is a very interesting article in the Crochet Insider written by Larisa Vilenksy. It tells us about a certain areas in Middle Asia where people were and even are now in some villages wearing very thick and incredibly gorgeous socks. They are worn instead of boots and are very warm. In these areas one of the main craft industries is a carpet making. The patterns and yarns used for carpets find their way to "jourabs" making. There are many different small countries in that part of the world and people are taking pride in their socks that are called differently according to the language of that particular region. Larisa gives us a wonderful overview of this craft and makes us want to research this topic even more.
