Socks!

A few years ago I learned how to knit socks on two circular needles....once you figure out the different parts of the sock it's fun to see how the variegated yarn patterns. If you figure the cost of the yarn and the hours to produce them they're worth about $200 a pair...but the tranquility that the repetition of knitting brings and the tactile sensations of handling the yarn and the intensity of the colors as the pattern reveals itself...priceless!
It's always more fun to do the first sock...I've got about 8 more socks waiting for me to get back and knit the 2nd sock.










Guy socks!
