Not a Sock


me, originally uploaded by gradschoolknitter.

In the time I've been in Spain I've dedicated probably 90% of my knitting time to socks. Considering that, once upon a very long time ago, I declared myself not a sock knitter (something I think we can all agree upon as being completely false now) you might be wondering why... well, in part because sock yarn is small - you only need one skein generally for a pair of socks - and therefore easy to pack.

And while this new project might look like a sock... it might even be made out of sock yarn (Dream in Color Starry in black pearl and grey tabby) and on sock size (US 1) needles... but it is not a duck... I mean, sock!

Nope, not at all... not even though the pattern is named "114-33 Yoga Socks / Leg warmers in fabel". Leg warmers are NOT SOCKS, people, trust me. Even if I make the "yoga sock" version (undecided as of right now) I still say they are not really socks. NO HEEL. NO TOE. = NOT A SOCK.

Or at least that's what I'm going to keep telling myself...
