I've never knit cotton socks. I think elasticity is a bit of a problem with them.

Seems like you could knit an elastic thread in with the yarn, though, wherever you wanted extra elasticity, like in the cuff.

Yes, you can reinforce it with sock nylon.

The socks I'm making right now are my experimental-yarns socks. I've got 9 different kinds of yarn in the sole, to see which will wear the best!

And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open."
