Simply Socks

DH went out to buy some new socks last month and yesterday, while folding the laundry, I noticed this:

Funny, I never knew he was so directionally challenged, he needed instructions on his socks and there's silly me thinking it didn't matter which foot a sock went on. OMG! The socks I've been knitting are all identical. Does that mean I've been knitting nothing but socks for the right foot? or just the left foot? Will my socks cause deformities of the feet of all the people I've knit socks for?


I think it's time to slow down on the sock knitting.

13 pairs and that's just the ones we wore last week.

What bliss! Handmade socks. They are a tribute to class and quality.

HI Iam still wearing the cosy variegated mauve socks you made for me. Was it a premonition that this was going to be a "Sock it to me day?"

Hand knit socks are the greatest.

I go through socks like toilet paper--big toe holes. I can send you my address.

Have you tried cutting your toe nails?

This is the first sock pattern I ever used and for cuff down socks. I love it. Just scroll down to: Basic Sock Pattern in 8 Sizes.

I really want to do adult sized socks. I've just about worn out that baby sock pattern you sent me.

wow, did you make all those socks! One can never have too many socks and once you have a pair of hand knitted ones it is hard to go back to store bought.

Store bought? What's that?

Those honeycomb socks are cool.

Thanks. It's my own design.

Did those socks come labeled like that? And there's that pink bathroom.

Yes, they did. Apparently they are ergonomic socks: The left sock is made specifically for the left foot and the same with the right.
The bathroom downstairs is still pink too.
