Ahhh the rainbow.
Ahh the fences in Kentucky.
Ahhh to flowering trees on my block.
Today I'm going to give you the reasons I love to knit socks:
because: buttons and I don't mix.
because: one skein of yarn makes a garment
because: you don't have to change needle sizes during the project
because: you don't have to purl if you don't want to for most of the sock
because: I love portability
because: I live in a day and age where there is more sock yarn than ever before to purchase and make into socks
because: giving socks as a gift is pretty nifty
because: you can make them as simple or as complex as you wish
because: there are whole books devoted to sock patterns
because: you can make a garment with one strand of yarn
that is just amazing
i love that part
A sock can be one skein of yarn without any breaks or ties or ends to weave in!
because: I can knit according to the seasons in any seasonal colors that excite me. They do excite me.
because: you can fair isle socks or not
because: socks are socks whether you are knitting for a baby or a giant person's bigfoot
because: socks get holes in them and you get to knit more socks
because you don't have to put a zipper in them
and because one of the very few , lets say two, parts of my body that will allow me to wear wool and not itch
is my feet!
Why do you love to knit socks?
