10 for 10 Celebration - Day 6

Rock yer Socks Saturday!
Have you been bit by the sock bug? I have...and now can't seem to get enough of knitting them. I feel it only appropriate to list the reasons why I love them so much. Note, just like on my previous post "fast & portable" projects tend to be my top priorities.

My Favorite Reasons to Knit Socks
  1. Portable.

  2. Work up quickly.

  3. Self striping fair-isle yarn (how do they make that stuff???)

  4. Tiny...fits in a little bag or purse.

  5. They are like having 4 little projects in one (ankle, heel, instep, toe)

  6. Ability to "throw" in an interesting stitch pattern like lace or ribs

  7. Having heated debates with other knitters over preference - toe up vs. ankle down and double points vs. magic loop

The best part...all items mentioned TODAY are 20% OFF for ONE DAY ONLY!
