I've been thinking about socks a lot lately, and sort of wishing I'd done "summer of socks" - because, seriously, even though it is still officially winter here, it is so totally summer weather that it is kind of freaking me out. Are we going to have winter weather in summer? Or just a really really really hot summer? It's a mad freaky weather world right now.
Ahhhh, weather, the best topic for conversations...what was I actually talking about? Yes, socks (which is clearly so much more interesting). A couple of weeks ago, I counted all the potential socks I have. At that time, it was 26 (that sum has since risen to over 30...how does this happen!!). Then I counted how many pairs of socks I've made - 11. I started knitting socks in about April 2006. So in 16 months, I've made 11 pairs of socks. And I've currently got enough sock yarn to last me at least 2 or 3 years. Will that stop me buying more sock yarn? I suspect not...and do I care? Not a jot!
Since I washed most of Husby's and my socks on the weekend, I thought I'd do a little photo shoot (inspired by a similar picture I saw posted on Flickr). All the pretties!
And in other socky news, my sockapalooza sockpal, M, received her socks - hurrah! Mine are almost on their way - my sockpal contacted me yesterday to let me know they were blocking as she typed - how exciting!
