Genius! Free-Sole Socks

I woke up to a cool email today from Knitting Daily talking about something I have never heard of before, but am totally in love with: Free-Sole Socks.  These are socks that you knit the leg and top of the foot separately from the sole and the heel, then you somehow join them together (I'm a little sketchy on the details).  Anyway, the point is, that when the sole of your sock wears down, you can remove it and knit another one to replace it - meaning your socks will last forever!  Neat, huh?

Here is a link to the blog post that Knitting Daily wrote about it, and here is a link to the book, by Anna Zilboorg.
