Socks I Have Loved

A new knitter recently asked me how many socks I have knit in my life. I've only been knitting since 2004 and since then I have knit at least 20 pairs of socks in my estimation. This was a shocking number to the new knitter, but not so much for me. It has been rare for me to not have a pair of socks on the needles since teaching myself to knit socks back in 2005. A pair of socks on the needles is like having a constant, if quiet companion.

I love having my sock knitting to take out when I have to wait in line, or if I happen to meet another friend who knits, or to knit at the movie theater. Seeing as I rarely knit anything other than plain socks it's easy enough to knit rounds and rounds of stockinette in the dark.

Since I've been knitting socks now for 7 years I wanted to see what I've made all in one go, which is why I've started this sock slideshow. At least for me it's enjoyable to see my favorite socks that I have knit and the ones my mom has knit for me. This is by no means representative of all of the socks I have ever knit, but I'll add more as I take more photos. The socks I have knit for my husband are some of my all time favorites.

I have no idea how many I've knitted but you've inspired me to make my own blog post about it. Yet another photo project on the horizon! Now where did I stash all those socks...

What's going on now?

I'm knitting. I've been caring for my two sons, living at my MIL's house, volunteering at our local co-op preschool and gardening. Trying to find time to write and to redefine this blog to embrace my current reality.
