  • Why I Knit Socks

    It's no use going to the goat's house to look for wool.
    -Irish Proverb

    This is my sister, about 3 minutes after I gave her a new pair of socks. Specially requested to be like the last pair - that is, "too soft to be wool." (Thanks Judy!)

    These are in Fiesta Baby Boom - a delightful squishy sock yarn that is definitely "too soft to be wool" and meet the demanding requirements of my sister that they be perfect for reading legal treatises in a drafty apartment.

    And that, my friends, is why I knit socks. Keeping feet warm and comfy from Somewhere, Iraq to Philadelphia to San Diego.

    Are you looking for a unique wedding anniversary gifts idea? One of the best choices is to come up with an anniversary scrapbook with a couple’s weeding picture on the first page of the scrapbook

    Definitely a good reason to knit socks, IMHO!
