Count Your Socks
As part of my goal to get to the point where I only wear handknit socks, I had Kaity make me a little button where I could keep track of how many pairs I have knit.
So far, I have five pair (pairs?, I can never decide) of handknit socks - Four I've made, and the pair Julia made me for the Sox Exchange. I also have two pairs of slippers, but I'm not counting them. As you can see.... I need to knit a lot more socks.
So, I figured I need an incentive, a push, a motivation... so here's my idea for anyone who wants to join in - I'd love it if sock-knitters all over blog land copied my button and kept their own sock tally going on their side bar. I would love to see the tallies. I want to be inspired by seeing how many socks are being knit. I'm sure there are some of you with LOTS of socks! I want numbers, baby, to keep me awed and inspired!
If you email me that you've put up a Sock Tally button, I'll record your starting number, whether you have one pair of socks when you join or 50, and at the end of 2006 I'll recheck everyone's numbers and see who has knit the most socks in a year... for a fabu prize, of course! (no cheating - this means PAIRS of socks - no singles!... 2, count 'em, 2 to a pair)
Or, if you don't want to go for the prize, just put the button up for fun, to keep track for yourself!
Ready, set.... KNIT SOCKS!!
