Yes, I'm addicted to knitting socks! There I've written it. I'm not sure what happened. I NEVER would have thought I'd write those words a year ago. Perhaps, it's because I don't try to knit anything but "vanilla" socks. I can knit them without a thought, cast on, rib, stockinette, after thought heel, stockinette, toe on toe, toe on heel...
I love finding unusual colors of yarn -
striping yarns are a favorite.
Socks are my emergency knitting, I carry a pair in progress everywhere. Third graders are always interested in my progress as they return from lunch each day - some think socks take forever, others think they're a quick knit! At meetings, faculty members expect me to pull out the current pair. Even the dentist is surprised when I don't bring my current knitting to an appointment.
So write In Dyer Straits, order some sock yarn and tell her you heard about her yarn from Emptyknitster.
Soon you'll find that you, too, are knitting during all your aggravating "hurry up and wait" moments!
