Sock It To Me

Am I the only blogging knitter, (or should that be knitting blogger), that hasn’t knitted a pair (or 50) of socks?? Every day I cruise around a few more knitting blogs and have noticed that almost without exception, everyone is making socks. There are sock groups, sock knit-a-longs, some people knit only socks! So, it got me thinking. What is it about knitting socks. I have never been tempted before; just the thought of that skinny yarn and fiddling with a handful of narrow double pointed needles!!! No way! But there must be something in it for so many knitters to be ‘socking’. Maybe it’s the new ‘magic’ yarns available that create fab fairisle patterns without you doing a thing?? What is it that makes knitting socks so addictive? So……

I am going to knit socks! Just one pair. All in the name of research. I’ll keep you posted on what I discover about this new phenomenon.
