Islamic Sock

I'm not sure how I got to this on Wikipedia, but I think its pretty darn cool. This sock was probably found in Fustat, Egypt from the 12th century and was knitted in India. Here is info on how it was knitted. Man, those early knitters are talented! This sock sits at the Textile Museum in DC. I really want to check that place out.
