Sox and Rubbers
Well I was saddened to read Alison's blog today regarding the lack of committment that has become prevalent among sox clubs. Is this a Strictly American problem? Some of you are apparently uncomfortable with the whole 'sox in today's society' discussion. But, I am a believer that sox education must begin early. Yes, even sox in the classroom....
If one waits to try sox, until later in life, the entire topic becomes taboo for some. With the sudden surge in second sox syndrome, I ask you, what is the root of soxual dysfunction? Let's face it: its the inablity to finish. Plain and simple.
If the knitter is uncomfortable with sox in the 2000's, whose to blame? It seems it isn't enough to have sox anymore. You have to join sox clubs, buy sox toys and and protect yourself with diagrams. These diagrams are not always 100 percent effective; they have been known to become lost, rendering them almost certainly ineffective.
Traditional sox methods have butted heads lately with the invention of the two circular craze. Apparently getting it started is the biggest issue. It seems to me sox is sox and one can enjoy it anyway they wish. Its a personal preference. If getting started keeps you from your sox, you'll never know...the joy of Sox at all.
Take it from those of us with lots of sox experience: have protected sox and wear your rubbers. A tear can lead to unwanted sox and lots of tears.
I won't even begin to have the whole Sox envy discussion........
