I just mentioned the other day that I always have a pair of socks on the needles. But now that I'm a quinquagenarian, I'm usually too hot for socks. But not yesterday. For some reason, I had really cold feet. I tried everything until finally caving in and getting a pair of hand knit socks out of my hand knit sock drawer.*
I started these socks summer of 2014. I finished them summer of 2015.
As I age, I'm too hot for socks. I've only made 3 or 4 pairs for myself in the past 3 years. I still knit BF his cashmere socks. He's not suffering any hot flashes.
Funniest part of all? I think this is the first time I've worn this pair of socks. They had that brand new look (in my house that means I didn't see any dog hair in them).
*Doesn't everyone have a drawer dedicated to hand knit socks?
