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.) Â 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…
