Sock mad ......

That's me.... I love socks... all the different styles and the variety of materials etc.... I like my feet to be warm and comfy.... I might even confess, to having too many socks... my sock drawer is over flowing... to the point that I have to put my winter ones away... in the summer to make room for the summer ones... like I said ... I'm sock mad... I love this photo on the side.. it looks idyllic, she looks so cozy... with her feet in her favourite socks, in front of the fire... mmmmm bliss.... I'm not very fashion conscious, I try to look nice, and have things that compliment each other ..., but I always make sure my socks go with my outfit... the part of my outfit no one sees... and I make sure I've got nice socks on.... Anyway... do you buy more of a particular item than any other... ?? What's causing your closet or wardrobe to bulge.... ??

I don't have anything right now that I just have to have. I'm not into shoes or purses or anything like that. I do love crafting stuff so if I had the money, that is what I would buy.

I used to have 100 pairs of socks, but I whittled that down now. I love socks because no matter how much weight I gain I still wear the same size.

@sueznewz2 You are right, I keep them in the boxes, I take a photo and put the photo on the front of the box, so I know which pair there is inside. Time by time I take out those that I never use and I donate to charities.

I used to have a collection of socks. All kinds. No I have about four pair plus two pair that are like lumberjack ones. Thick like a man would wear in his boots. They keep my feet warm.

My daughter loves socks! And she loves to get brightly colored ones that you can see from halfway across the planet! And she doesn't care if they match! She'll wear whatever she feels like wearing, even if clashes with her outfits (she's a teenager).

Vince was always saying he needed more socks. He now has two drawers full and I'm not letting him buy any more till some wear out.

I tend to just buy a batch of socks in the same colour, then I don't have to worry about finding pairs.

my tee shirts are my main thing - I have lots with silly captions and designs and a few TV related ones - two Family Guy tees for example.

Okay @sueznewz2 , I want to see you in an evening dress with socks on. Just kidding. Since I'm a T-shirt/shorts or T-shirt/jeans kinda girl, I do wear socks, but they're nothing fancy.

I love making earrings and I already have too many. I have wondered about trying to sell them because already I have more than I need to wear. I've tried knitting socks but I can't work out how to go around the heels...

I love making earings too.... but my ears are not pierced...I give mine to charities to sell...and to friends as gifts...., I think it'sgood that you knit,..but that is one thing I can't/don't do....but it must be very satisfying seeing the finished items....

I wear flip-flops most days--it is part of the South Florida 'uniform'--the only time I wear socks are when I get dressed to go to the theatre--about 15 times a year! It's short sleeved shirts, shorts and flip-flops!!

I knit socks all day long. I don't know why when I could crochet an entire pair in an evening, I keep knitting them instead. All for the toes. It's all about the toes.

I always say that if I win big, I would buy a new pair of socks to wear every day of the year! How about that for a sock addiction?
