I like to knit socks

I carry socks everywhere, the idea being that if I have them with me I’ll be able to whip them out and work on them in found moments when I’m out of the house. No matter that those found moments are so few and far between that it takes me 3.5 months to finish a pair of socks I could have made in a week back when I commuted by subway.

Just trying to make a picture of socks remotely interesting.

They were ostensibly socks for Hubs for Christmas, but they didn’t make it and I wasn’t really trying. I sourced a finished pair from my box ‘o finished socks for the holiday and threw these into the same for next year.

Gifted socks in Regia Pairfect. I have made 5 pairs of socks with Regia Pairfect. It’s sort of a thing with me.

Hubs wears the socks I make him, even the traffic cone orange ones. But only on weekends, he informs me.

A less interesting supersaturated picture of socks.

Those socks, the glaringly bright orange ones, our neighbor was laughing at them one day when Hubs was wearing them with shorts. “I made those socks!” I proclaimed. It felt silly and intimate and very us.
