I felt it was important to finish these socks.--I started them in November and well, it's time already! After all I didn't really knit that many pairs this year... (or so I thought)
Then I checked Ravelry.--And checked again--18 pairs of socks! These will make 19!
I forgot about the sock I knit for others (DD(3 pairs) Grandchild), and well I guess I haven't been too much of of a slouch. (I like to knit about a pair a month--sometimes an extra one, sometimes, 1 short of a dozen.)
Some of the socks almost don't count –bed socks (short ones at that) in worsted weight yarn, or the yoga socks (not toe, no heel hardly a sock at all) but then, there were the beaded socks. I think they should count double.
Still-- 19 pairs!
Also, at one point this year, collected all my sock yarn in one place—well actually 3 places—one big bag of solid color socks yarns, and another of prints/stripes/handpainted. And in a 3rd place, I have a quite large collecion of partial balls. The Roy G Biv socks barely uses a half skein of each of the colors. So I have lots of colors to use in a pair of spiral socks, or in a pair of jump rope socks or in a pair of shades of grey socks.
I have so many ideas for fun socks (and I plan to write up a few of the ideas as patterns, next year , too) and so much yarn, and there are some socks I that I have knit that I just love, and want to knit again.. (my Cascading Water socks for one!)
