  • The Number We've All Been Waiting For

    The whole is more than the sum of its parts.
    -Aristotle


    I promise and I don't deliver. At least you guys keep me honest! This Socktober I'm going to catch up with my sock list, my sock number, and a photo of all the socks I happen to have in my sock box this very moment (probably about half of the ones I have - the rest were too dirty for blogland). Here's the photo, inspired by Abigail's Sock Circle:
    And, since you're just so gosh darn curious - the number of socks I've knit is 115. (I still have to blog about pair 115, btw, so don't hold your breath.) My pace has really slowed down recently. I'm sure I could have done the 52 Pair Plunge while in med school, but now it's more like 1-2 pairs a month. Still, better than nothing, right?

    And since we're talking about socks, let me call your attention to two lists previously posted on this blog:

    1. Great Sock Patterns
    2. Great Sock Patterns for Manly Men

    Just for your Socktoberfest enjoyment!

    And coming soon . . . the Scrappy Socks are flying off the needles. It's just far too entertaining to watch!

    That's a lot of socks! I'm going to have to go back through my lists and count my total but it's not nearly as high as yours.

    Wow, I am very impressed by your circle of socks! Two pair a months sounds plenty productive to me. :)

    Holy crap! I'm in awe of the number of socks in your drawer, not to mention the total # knit. You amaze me.

    Because of you, I've been keeping count of the socks I knit. I'm working on #18 right now.

    Wow, 115 pairs? I don't think I've knit 5 in my entire knitting career. Life. Whatever it's called.

    I think it is safe to say that I am not likely to knit 115 pairs of socks in my lifetime...do baby socks count? Well then, maybe...
