This is an actual text I sent my sister:
Yes, I had a moment where I feared I had too many socks. No, I can’t believe it either. Now, that thought didn’t stay with me long, and I laughed to myself and proceeded knit round after round of a sock in progress.
Socks are my go-to project. I always have at least one pair on the go, and often more during holiday-knitting season.
Socks can generally be knit with one skein of 100g yarn. One skein, one completed project. It’s great. I have no problem buying skeins upon skeins of sock yarn because I know it can be used for something without fear of running out!
Socks are also fabulously transportable. My purse is never complete without a pair of socks tucked inside.
Socks can be as simple or complex as you want. There’s a lot of freedom with a pair of socks. There are certain constants: the cuff, leg, heel, foot, and toe, but how will you do the cuff, what pattern will feature on the leg and instep, heel flap or afterthought? So many ways to make a sock your own.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have socks to knit, and a sock drawer to organize.
