Year of the Sock?

“One can never have enough socks.” ~ Albus Dumbledore
It started with an attempt to finish old projects.  Languishing in a project bag all alone except for some yarn and a set of needles was a sock.  I had started it months ago and was struck by the SSS disease.  I felt bad and who can't use another pair of wool socks in the winter, especially one where below normal temps are the new normal.

Needless to say I finished them and made my feet happy.  Paton's Kroy Socks in Clover colors on size 2 dpns, basic sock pattern.

Since I had overcome the disease I started on another pair hoping I didn't relapse.  I didn't and my feet were doing the happy dance.  Aisling Yarns in Casablanca on size 0 dpns, short row heel pattern by SR Kertzer that came with a Mary Maxim order years ago.

And my momma always told me "moss won't grow on a rolling stone" (aka a rolling stone gathers no moss) so while I was feeling so sock friendly I cast on for another pair.  I finished one sock and the other is on the needles already.  Red Heart Heart and Sole in Razzle Dazzle, short row heel on size 2 dpsn's.

I was told 2011 was the year of the Rabbit but I am thinking it is the year of the sock.   My feet are not complaining and neither is the man since it is all stash!  Win Win Win situation.  Off to finish the second sock

Sigh!! So glad it's the year of the sock!! ;o)
I feel like I fit right in now and don't have some sort of weird rare illness in wanting to knit socks all the time :)
Happy New Year!
