The timelessness of socks

In solidarity with 50 is the new 40 and his much-anticipated return to posting, here is a great historical poem for sock knitters (circa 1885). I haven't worked this pattern, but someday I'd like to make the product of these verses. Enjoy! (Argh - the double-click isn't opening the image, so you'll have to go to this PDF and read it on page four.)
