First Socks

 It was chilly enough last night to have to dig out some socks for my cold feet.

I have this ritual every year. My feet get cold and then I go look through the sock bins and decide it's not chilly enough yet for wool. I get out the same pair of cotton socks-my one and only handknit pair.

Good look, huh? Sun dress with flannel sheepy pj pants with cotton socks and crocs. I don't do season changes well.  I never know what to put on. I feel very out of sorts when I don't have a seasonal uniform to just throw on without thinking about it.

What I need to do is knit more cotton socks. I have a few balls in my stash and I always turn my nose up at them never remembering they are my "bridge" socks.  I should cast them on now while I am thinking about them but that would be pair number five on the needles and that's a lot-even for me.


  1. I don't have any cotton socks but they sound really comfortable. It's still too warm here to even think about socks though.

  2. HA! The socks are pretty and it is always nice to slip into a pair of hand knit socks!

  3. Is there such a thing as too many socks OTN?
    Everything looks good with sheepy jammies!

  4. Go for it! You won't be sorry!

    I have no cotton socks. Cotton sock yarn doesn't seem to be very popular here in Florida. Go figure!

  5. I get it! I started yesterday in a turtleneck cotton shirt and a tshirt over that for the fun RIDE volunteer station IN Lake Geneva. By after noon I was hot and took the turtleneck off. By bedtime, I needed 3 blankets. As for you and your cotton sock transition, I love it . As for the look, You think I"D JUDGE you? not on your knit life

  6. Loving your look. I sport a similar look most evening. As soon as kids are home from school I'm in "pyjama mode"!

  7. I'm quite fond of the pj and croc look myself and I need to get some cotton sock yarn. We don't usually need wool socks here very often.

  8. Love your outfit! I need sheep jammies. 48 this a.m. on the patio - felt wonderful!!

  9. Your socks are lovey and your sheep jammies are boss! I think we'd all love a pair!
