Time Socks

I think I fell into a vortex. Some rift in the space-time continuum. A place where only socks matter. Thick socks. Thin socks. Big socks. Little socks. Boxy socks Foxy socks. I have wasted an entire day, just figuring out the dimensions of my socks. And tomorrow is Thanksgiving. So much to do. For one thing, I didn't make them any supper here, and they are looking hungry. And this is the first time I have been here on myLot. Apologies for my absence are heartfelt. I am sorry all the way down to my socks. Time is a fleeting thing. Tempus fugit, so they say. Time slips away and it won't come back. Time socks. So, time to see what you have all been doing today.

What were you doing with your socks? I have been known to organize them all by colour. But it doesn't take all day!

Time does slip away all too easily. We need to treasure every moment.

I once invented socks with cute slogans that you could bundle up with rubber bands and dip in colored inks. They were called Life Socks, then you Dye.

@paigea - It's true - just one of those stupid things you do when you're a student. Sorry, no photos.

@troyburns I didn't think that was true until you said it was. I thought it was just a long day's journey to a punch line. But, cool idea.

If only I could manage the fuzzy yarn. Someone gave me this fuzzy yarn but it's terrible to work with.

@Rollo1 that stuff is cool, but I bet so, I wonder if loom might work better?

@Jessicalynnt You really need some elasticity in yarn for looming, and those kinds of yarn are usually some kind of string with fuzzy stuff on it, and no give to it.

@LadyDuck I am back from T-day dinner but I am exhausted and eyes closing. MyLot must wait for a sleep session to have been accomplished.

Some people get really hung up about socks. There for a while my husband was always saying he needed more socks. He didn't like the ones he had. Now he has two (small) drawers full he isn't game to complain any more.

Socks are so important to you overall attitude and well-being. There's nothing worse than having wet socks freezing to your toes in February.

Are you winking or is time caught in your eye?

@Rollo1 Time stands still for no man (person) - but it is a wink, or a blink...

We might have to knit those out of steel wool.

Summer bare feet, bare arms, bare legs. Socks have banished to the winter drawers.

I wear socks in the summer too, to protect my poor old feet. But now, it's essential.

I was wondering what you want to do with the socks.... I have never successfully knitted a sock before, though I tried to knit one. Perhaps I can try knitting my first pair of socks next year, certainly not now. Hope you will figure this out soon.

I love a good pair of comfortable socks. We did a lot of prepping ahead of time yesterday for Thanksgiving. Hopefully today we won't have so much to do. Happy thanksgiving!
