My Dirty Little Secret

I have lots of hand knit socks. Lots.
So many that I don't wear any one pair very often. As a result, I don't wash them as often as I should. Since cool weather is upon us and I am in need of warm feet again, I noticed (or should I say my nose noticed) that my sock drawer a word....stinky. P U stinky.

I gave them all a gentle bath and then a dry in the sun but the autumn sun let me down. You should see my bathroom right now. Wet socks everywhere.

  1. I'm terrible. I wear my hand-knit socks until they could walk away on their own. And then after washing them, I lay them on the sweater rack in my dryer and cook the heck out of them. Then again, in an Oregon Winter, they'd never get dry without some careful baking.

    Your line reminds me I ought to get back to sock knitting again!
