my favorite things!

I love socks. And sock yarn. And tiny needles. And double points. And making toes. And turning heels. And short rows. And self-striping. I love it all, I think.

My favorite part of socks is turning the heels, though.
What is your favorite part of socks?

I love it all too! I especially like that you can knit a pair of socks rather quickly and have "almost" instant gratification. I tend to lose interest when I'm doing bigger projects but socks keep me motivated. I guess I like turning the heel best... the first time I did it, I couldn't believe that I actually did it right!

I have to agree with you - turning the heel is pretty magical!

I like the tinyness of an actually fairly intensive knitting project. Everything being mini is my favorite part. Plus, the cushness and luxury of hand-made socks on my feet are sort of a secret. Although, I'd rather display them on a clothesline with funky clothespins than in my messy dresser drawer. Hrmmm... idea?

I just *love* socks. Yes, I've gotten quirky odd looks from my loved ones who just don't get it.

It's all about the heel...
