The problem with socks

Is that you must knit two of them.

Not just one. Not one-and-a-half. Two. They come in pairs, they are rather insistent that way. Like mittens.

This is why I like hats.

But I have some extra yarn left over from the secret mission socks and I'm knitting more socks. For MM because he's got the smallest feet in the house and therefore I am less likely to run out of yarn mid-sock.

The good thing about kids socks is that they're small and eminently portable. The perfect size to bring to lunch with friends.

I had that same issue with mittens when I used to knit. I'd get bored after the first one, and I'd want to knit the second one in a different colour.

I'm not a knitter, but I would think that larger socks are easier than smaller ones. Is that the case?

Small socks = fast and easy. Big socks = slower and still have to make two of them.
