Carie, Ingrid, and Jouf :notworthy: for comments about my :XX:
I only wear Birkies. so my socks are visiable. I have been knitting for so very long that I have a lot of sweaters so switched to socks when the new self patterning yarns came out. Now I also use solid colors and put lace, cable or relife st work in them.
[I am working on a couple of new sweaters for me but it has been a while since I did. No one else in my family wants any more sweaters, either, and now my youngest said she didn't need any more socks.]
