I love my new sock (singular).
 I'm really enjoying this and Anne Hanson's directions are so easy to read.  She makes me believe that I might have the  talent to become a sox knitter! Whoa, Nellie.  I'm getting ahead of myself here!
Jelli - can you hear me?  I. AM. KNITTING. SOX.  For real.  I have this vision - of opening my chest of drawers to find an entire collection of hand-knit sox.  This is what I would call opulence.  Decadence.  Happiness.
A basket of sox would suffice, too.  I have this wonderful new book from which this image is lifted.  I cannot remember ordering this book!  Does anyone know how it came to live with me?  I'm serious!
It's a lovely book and it contains some of the juiciest sox patterns ever.  And I like her pedicure.  A lot!
One pattern is more interesting than the next!  I'll never peruse the sox aisle at TXMax again.  How can one pull on commercial sox when the handmade variety is out there, waiting to be created?

Your sock is such a pretty color. I am sure you can make a pair!

Last Christmas my sister gifted me a pair of pure wool socks that she made. They were so warm and comfy. I slipped them on almost every day when I got home from work. I finally wore a hole through each one and had to throw them away. I hope she makes me more this year!

I am so proud of you! Your sock is gorgeous, but I must tell you to stop dangling new books in front of me, especially books with Japanese stitch patterns. Especially books I don't already have. Especially books I can't say no to. STOP!!!! ::slams door on the way to the bookstore::

Hi fellow sock knitter! Maybe I should take a picture of my sock drawer. That seems like a good idea for a post doesn't it?
