WOW...expertly that green..very "spring" looking.

I have seen people ask why knit socks..when you can buy them cheaper???

They obviously have never knitted socks!

Now you are bitten with the sock bug...hehe I love it too!


Thanks Camilla!  I'm not quite sure if I'm bitten -  yet.  I don't like to wear socks, so was never interested in knitting them.  I'll see how this next pair goes, and would like to make a pair for myself.  I figure by then I'll know if it is something I want to continue.  I hope what I've heard about hand knitted socks being more comfortable than store bought socks is true, because there sure are so many cute sock patterns out there. 

Last year the dad of my DD's best friend asked why I was spinning my own yarn.  Didn't I know I could go buy it in a store?   I laughed when he asked me and tried to explain it to him, but he just didn't get it - lol. 

I personally think hand knit socks are more comfortable to wear... and I wear socks a lot. 


You are most welcome.

Some people are just

Those of us that have a passion for natural to spin, knit and other fine projects.

Like Susan I wear socks but not when I am hot lol...natural fibers just wick away any wetness of your feet and just feel better...I have diabetic feet so I make them to my fit and likeing.


Clueless!  That's for sure.  Clueless muggles IMHO - lol. 

I've been so hot this winter, that if, and that's a big if these days, I put on a pair of footies, you can tell exactly right where I was standing/sitting when my power surge spiked.  My DD was constantly laughing about where she'd find my quickly discarded socks around the house. 

LOL... I do stuff like that too... but not just with the socks... ROFL.  It was nearly 80º here today, and I have been roasting all day long.

I know what you mean.  Last night when I got home from knit night, I was roasting, so off came the clothes where ever I was standing.  Maybe I should rephrase that, my socks - still by the chair,  my jeans hanging over the kitchen chair, my blouse, well- I just didn't feel right sitting around knitting in my underwear, so I still ended up roasting.  lol

It wasn't quite that warm here today, but I was so happy to be able to wear my flip flops to spinning guild today.  Tonight, I've been fluctuating between freezing and roasting.  Hate these stupid power surges. 

I had to turn the AC on in the bedroom last night to get to sleep... my house is too well insulated and holds in all of that heat.

It has been unusually warm here, too. 


Thanks, Debbie, as a matter or fact, I whipped up these two cute bun covers for my oldest DGD who is a ballerina with seriously long hair... so a big bun...

30 yards of yarn and 2 hours of my time... = one delighted granddaughter:  Priceless!
