Thank you do much. I'm on a real sock kick this year. My goal is to have at least 2 weeks' worth in my drawer. Just finished my 4th pair of the year and already mulling over what the 5th pair will be. And 6th. I might do 4AAT again.

Those socks are so nice! I put off sock knitting for quite a while, because I couldn't figure out the heel. But eventually I got irritated with myself for being a quitter and tried it again. I made a few fugly pairs and then got the hang of it. Socks are now my favorite things to knit.

You're welcome. Your sock adventures are inspiring. I feel I might get a bit more adventurous.

I only have 2 pair going right now, one for me and one for my sister. My next pair may be Skew Socks. They look interesting and it's time I used a sock pattern I think. I want really wild colors for it. Suggestions? I've been looking for cotton sock yarn and maybe some of this cotton and elastic would do.

I even like my fugly socks. They're warm and comfy. That's what sox is for.
I'm doing the heel stitch (*sl 1, k1*) on short row heels and I think I like the way it's working out. My Felici Sport Macaroon yarn is sooooo soft and nice, too bad I've promised them to someone else.

Yep, I still wear my fugly pairs, except the very first pair, which my dogs chewed up. Everybody's a critic, right? The other thing socks are for is showing off to my friends.
