i only have two feet. and yet, while doing laundry today, i was shocked to discover this:
in case it's not readily apparent from the picture, that's 12 pairs of handknit socks. twelve. i'm not sure how this happened; i knew i had a sock knitting problem, but i didn't realise it had reached such proportions. they don't even all fit on the magical sock-drying device anymore:
yes, i know it has another purpose, but to me it's all about the sock-drying. the reason they have to be dried this way can be seen if you look very carefully at the bottom of the first picture. the sock-drying device is located in the bedroom, which is the only room that does not allow entry to the small, furry, sock eating creature who practices his "innocent" look while unsuspecting stray socks disappear into his mouth.
surely i'm not the only one who has such an addiction? other sock-knitting folk must also have the problem of accumulating so many pairs of socks. someone on the knitty board confessed to having about 40 pairs... clearly, i've got some catching up to do. i am, however, about to order more sock yarn... just to get me through the winter, you know. i can stop anytime i want.
