True love is like a pair of socks:
you gotta have two and they’ve gotta match.


Six Socks

And soon there will be twelve. These six socks (plus the mate to the first one) are the results of my October knitting. The last three are ribbed like crew socks. The last two have shaped arches (Meg Swansen style). So, I figure that I ought to be able to knit the last five mates in November and have them wrapped for Christmas in plenty of time. I figured it up. If I factored in minimum wage for the hours I spent plus the cost of the yarn, each pair would be about $175.00! But who is counting? Knitting these tied my thoughts to the people who will receive them. That is priceless.
