I Like Hand-Knit Socks. And Sock Knitting. And Especially Sock Yarn. Want Some? Springtree Road Giveaway

I guess it qualifies as an obsession.

My sock drawer is overflowing.

15+ years of sock knitting….

My sock yarn stash is an embarrassment of riches.

Spot the soon-to-be Halloween and Christmas socks. The Halloween yarn is from The Amy Lee show.

And I have a disturbing number of sets of 2.25 and 2.5mn DPNs and long circulars.

This doesn’t even include the needles in the 4 sock projects I have on the go right now…

Still, there are worse addictions to have. My feet are never cold, and there’s no gluten, caffeine or sugar in sock yarn. There are no calories or trans fats or artificial sweeteners. Sock yarn doesn’t rot my teeth or damage my health or keep me up at night. (Ooh… actually, that one might not be true.)  And there are more expensive collections to have. Guitars, A/V equipment, golfing equipment, skis. And there are hobbies that require more space: gardening, motorcycles, cars.

But still, I do sometimes worry that I have too many hand knit socks, or I buy too much sock yarn… but then I fall in love with something like this…

    I like socks too! I’ve been trying to lose weight lately, and I’ve realized that while none of my pants or sweaters fit right now, my hand knit socks as just as cozy and dependable as ever.

    I like socks! My second project ever was a pair of socks, because I thought they would be easier to knit than say a sweater or hat. I still like socks!

    I love sock yarn! I have nearly worked through my stash and would love to use these for gifts for my sisters who love cool colors.

    Last Tues,84.5 deg F.;next day 43.6(dropped 20 deg in half-hour).Don’t even ask about the old vs. new “lows”; that was today:72 hi,24 low instead of 50. Great socks are allowed with one’s Teva’s on such crazy days,where ya ditch the socks later … definitely depends on nifty socks/yarn.

    I love knitting socks and love sock yarn even more, I have so much already but I always need more and the colors look lovely.

    Those are beautiful colors — I can almost feel the socks on my feet and see them with my Birks, now that it is too cold in Maine to go without socks, that is.

    I love this post!! Sock yarn and hand knit socks is also the addiction for me!! By the way, I’d love to have this yarn to pet and call my very own 🙂

  9. susan

    the trick will be to wear all 3 pairs of socks at once so the beautiful colours can be displayed together!

    Ph, I love those colors, and the socks I am working on are nearly finished. And its October…

    I love those colors. They’d look gorgeous in a stranded pattern together. I’ve been on a sock jag too, lately. None of them seem to end up in my own drawer, though.

    I LOVE to knit socks! I have knitted socks for all of my family. Those colors look so delicious!!!! I imagine a pair of socks that are a fair isle fall surprise of leaves….falling or something like that. Yummy.. Can’t wait to start.

  13. Ange Moore

    Oh, hopefully I’m not too late to enter! I have yet to knit a pair of socks but that yarn is to-die-for and if I won it would be the kick up the backside I’d need to give sock knitting a go!

  14. Bridget

    Such fun colors! I’d planned to focus on patterns for my toddler, but if I win I’ll definitely make time to knit some socks for myself too!
