I was writing and writing.
I had pages of socky goodness.
It would have bored you to tears.
Besides, you know me and socks. I love it all. Sure, some yarn tickles your fancy more than others...but, it's all good, right? I mean, how can you go wrong when the final product is a warm pair of socks?
I love all the colours; the jacquards, the stripes, the solids, the handpainted [okay, maybe not the handpainted so much]. I still love it all! I love the wool blends, the cotton blends, the silk blends and now bamboo blends.
What do you mean, "you're getting bored?" I'm not done yet. It'll get better. Trust me.
Anyway, then there are the patterns. Patterns for toe up, cuff down, or sideways. Patterns for cabled, lacy or plain. In book form, leaflet or free on the web. I love it all!
That wasn't a tear you were wiping away, was it? I'm continuing with this post, waterworks or not.
Oh, and the needles. You can knit socks any way you choose. Using DPN's, one circular or two in aluminum, bamboo, take your pick. I love it all!
Stop that! You're taking away the socky love!
Where was I? Oh yes...
Don't forget the portability of the sock project. Gotta love it! Oh, and all those cute little bags to carry your sock project in.
Then there is the best part about socks. When the knitting is done and you slip them on your cold feet in the middle of winter. Or, when you finish a pair for someone you love and see their smile as they slip them on and feel how wonderful they feel. Everything is good.
Oh for heaven's sake the post is over and you can stop your sobbing now!
Yeah, you guessed it, I only finished one pair of socks so far for Socktoberfest.

That's all the knitting I've done since I last posted. Sad, huh? Gotta admit though that the socks are pretty damn cute.
Anyway, I felt the need to post and knew it would be bor...
