14 Socks

I think I'm in the home stretch, I finally started the last sock!


Only thing is of course, you know these are for my husband so of course they are ginormous. Don't expect a post showing them as finished tomorrow or anytime this week probably. In the middle of these and the white scarf somewhere I also managed to knit these up.


Wee little socks for my wee little niece! Unfortunately, even with wee socks I have yarn-running-out issues. This is just some random acrylic I had floating around, I was certain when I started them there would be more than enough. Oh well... So if you look really, really close you can tell the one in the back is probably knitted tighter (because I knew I would run out) and then the tip of the toe is actually some Kroy sock yarn I found and used triple stranded to finish them up. Hopefully she won't be too bothered by it, she's two you know. So big socks, little socks I had to take this picture.

And of course my favorite picture:


I wish I could have taken this when the second husband sock was finished, on a day that wasn't gloomy gray so I'd have better light, but I'm hearing the lines at the post office are murder this year so some of these have to get wrapped and mailed soon! But still seven pairs of socks... 14 socks... I want to print this picture out and carry it with me and when I feel blue I can say, in 2007 I knit my friends and family 14 socks... and boy it sure was fun! Or what if I put it on my desk at work next to my wedding picture... Now that wouldn't seem too weird would it? I guess it would, I've realized lately that when the people at work hear me talking about knitting it's probably a lot like when the people at Dunder Mifflin hear Dwight Shrute talking about growing beets... Or Ping Pong...


Yup, I can see it that sock photo on his desk, right next to the bobble head and the Sheriff Mug... Too weird...

That's a great picture of all of those socks, you should put it on your desk. Embrace your Dwightness and own it!

Marvelous socks. Gotta love Dwight... I love how Jim's roommate immediately know who Dwight is when Jim has the party at his house.

Oh you dirty little sock whore!

In all seriousness, I would pass out wallet size pics to my family in addition to putting it on my desk.
