Did someone say socks??

All thru November and December I was obsessed – yes, obsessed! – with knitting socks!  Not big socks tho – just little socks.  Many, many, many little socks!!

 It all started with odds and ends of sock knitting yarn – Opal, Regia, who knows what else.  I looked at these little balls and bits and thought – SOCKS!!  Little pairs of socks……. even a little hat.  And then, when the balls were even smaller – but still too big to throw out – I thought….. littler socks!  socks to hang on my tree!  ornament socks!  And these were so cute that they lead to other ornament socks.  Hey – any sock you can knit and finish in an hour – that does not have to match another sock – that uses up those tiny little balls until they are all gone – and that are sooooo cute when they are finished????  How could I resist.  So all thru December, thru Christmas, thru the drive to my mom’s and back, I knit little socks.  Pairs when there was enough yarn, ornie socks when there was not enough for two.  And then I gave them away – my mom ended up with 6 for the elves that must accompany Santa – I do hope they are not of the house elf variety that is freed when given clothing – a couple for teachers, one to my SIL.

 Here are the ones still here at my house:

 Am I done knitting socks??  Somehow, I don’t think so.  I have been busy stitching the past few evenings, but my yarn and needles are close by, ready for the next time the urge hits!
