It's exactly what it looks like, a stack of identical white socks, a stack of identical black socks, and a tiny little stack of "other" socks, which surprisingly enough contains a small stack of identical beige socks. And quite visibly - my one and only pair of hand knit socks!
The white socks on the left are my best fitting socks. I got them in the little girls section. They are actually the size between toddler socks and 'big girl' socks. I am soooo not joking. They do have to stretch to fit my feet - but they're very comfortable. The black socks are "womens size 5-10" I would honestly like to meet the person who decided that a woman who wears size 5 shoes should wear the same sized socks as a woman who wears size 10 shoes. It's insane. The black socks super baggy and fall down all the time. If you're keeping track of the sizes... that makes the hand-knit socks on the right essentially big enough to wear over a pair of keds.
And if you look closely you'll note that bit of light blue at the toe. I ran out of yarn right as I was trying to kitchner the toe. I hate these socks. I mean, I loved them when I made them because they do really look like socks. But I didn't enjoy making them, and they're really not that comfortable. I wear them to bed when my other socks are in the laundry.
And that ladies & gentlemen is my sock drawer, and the sum total of my hand knit socks. I'd like to tag Stariel, Babbling Stacey, Batty & Magatha - I think they'll have much more exciting sock drawers!
That's all for today - tomorrow... Quilt-O-Rama!
