Socks....and my take.

Last night I finished my 2x2 rib socks. For most that isn't a huge accomplishment. But for me.... well I love my handknit socks, I know how to make them, but they don't motivate me to knit like most. Now don't get me wrong there is so many wonderful things about knitting socks.
1. Portable
2. Inexpensive
3. Easy to alter pattern
4. Once you made a pair you really don't need a pattern.
5. Yummy sock yarn (and that is an understatement)
6. Great gifts

I could go on and on about the pro's. But I don't get excited about them enough to knock out pairs upon pairs like others. I usually keep a pair on the needles at all times. Toss them in my purse when I go places like the doctor's office or when my current sweater project is too big to carry around. They are wonderful for stoplight knitting and those huge traffic jams that we don't get here. But they just don't get much dedicated knitting time. But if I had a choice I would knit a sweater over socks any day of the week. Hmmmmm..... maybe someday I'll get the spark and not socks like a crazy woman. But for now I should probably cast on for the camo socks huba has been asking for (for like the last year.)


ps. started another sweater last night. yep right after I grafted the toe on the sock. more details later
