It's October. You know what that means!
Truth be known, it's Socktoberfest at Chez NK 24/7/365, if you know what I mean!
Some of you have been asking about what I do with all the socks I knit. I wear alot of them, and as I retire an old favorite pair I bring a new one into the line-up. Sometimes, they are just too pretty to wear for everyday and I save them for special occasions. I used to gift a lot of socks to my friend Linda. Then I taught her to knit. Now I gift her sock yarn!
I love knitting socks, they're portable and quick, and oh so gratifying! I can test-drive different fibers and colors and patterns (sometimes the same pattern over and over!). Sock knitting provides an awful lot of entertainment in such a small package!
Happy Socktoberfest New Moon Friday!
