I am pretty sure now that I am the only one on the planet who doesn't knit socks. I used to be afraid of the teeny tiny needles, but since I've spent most of the summer knitting sweaters on number 3 needles, I don't think that is an issue anymore. I like the idea of portable knitting. I'm attracted to the fun sock yarns I run across in my yarn travels. I bought both of my pals sock yarn this month, Trekking and Mountain Colors Bearfoot and the yarns are absolutely beautiful. I like knitting everything in the round.
I hate dpns, I'm too clumsy for them. If I am not poking myself with them, the stitches are dropping off. But I like magic looping stuff and I could certainly loop socks. So why am I the only one not knitting socks?
I could be that I am just too conservative to wear bright colored socks. They don't really fit my personal style. I could certainly knit socks for others though.
I feel left out of the knitting loop not knitting socks. You are all knitting them, exchanging them, wearing them for pictures. All the above being said, I really have zero desire to knit socks. So I'm resisting running with the pack. You can't make me. I'm on the island of misfit knitters. Am I alone? Leave me a comment about why you knit socks or why you don't. I'll send someone my barely opened "Knitting Vintage Socks" book. I'll get Chris to point me to some random number generator techie thing and use that to pick the winner. And while you are at it, can you identify the sources of the two 60's/70's pop culture references in today's post? Post your comment by Friday.
