Socks, Socks, Socks

I love knitting socks... actually I am addicted to knitting socks.

Currently I've knitted 25 pairs of socks and number 26 is on the needles.
In my sock yarn stash are 36 skeins just waiting to become socks and that doesn't count the 'left overs' that can be combined to make another 12 pair.

I also love books and patterns for knitting socks. I haven't counted those lately but probably 6-8 books and at least 2 dozen individual patterns. Oh, and 3 sock knitting books in my Amazon wish list.

While I'm confessing my love for knitting socks I'll also confess that all of them (save 1 pair) are for me. Below are pictures of my more recent socks that I haven't shared yet.

I think that's enough sharing about my addictions to the knitting of socks and don't worry I am knitting other items as well which I'll share latter.
Knit on all

I envy you your sock drawer! I've never managed to catch the sock bug (and not for want of trying, either), but I do love wearing them. I especially like the Raveny and Alki Sailors.
