Socks


Hi, my name is Candy.
I have a problem.
A problem with socks.
You see, I have enough socks for six people.
Two big drawers full of socks.
Cotton socks, wool socks.
Knee-high socks, anklet socks, no-show socks.
Store bought socks, hand knit socks.
Plain socks, colorful socks.
Christmas socks, Halloween socks, Valentine's Day socks.
I even have a pair of socks with toes.
These are my favorite socks.
I love that they are different but yet the same.
How about you?
Do you have a problem with socks?
Whew, I feel better now that I've gotten that off my chest! ;)

Got it off your chest or off your feet?

I love buying those cheepie holiday socks. But, they are really cheap as I only get three or four "wears" out of them. But hey, what do you want for a buck?! It makes me smile.
BTW, those socks in the picture are AWESOME looking!

I don't share that addiction, sad to say. I'm wondering if you like sock for the same reason I like handbags--they always fit when you try them on! ;)

This time of year - one can never have too many.

Haha so funny! I love socks but don't have quite the collection that you do! My mom usually gives me a new pair of Christmas themed socks each year, so I have quite a few of those!

TexWisGirl said...

you're too funny. i have another blogger pal (rita in fargo, nd) that has a sock fetish, too. :)

Kristina said...

Ha ha ha! I do have several pairs of Christmas socks, but I don't have any hand knitted ones.

Marigold said...

Pardon the pun, but is there a 12 *step* program for folks like you? :)

Cute socks! My only problem with them is when only one of the pair goes missing! Normally I find it later wrapped up in underwear or some T-shirt. My granddaughter loves socks, and doesn't seem to care if they match or not- in fact, if they don't match it may be better. She'd love these!

Buttons said...

Oh I have the same addiction if you can call it that, one reason may be they are cheaper than shoes but who knows. I do love the ones you are wearing. Happy New Year. B

Great looking socks!

One year for Christmas ( when the girls were younger) we bought them socks for Christmas as a joke. The next year we didn't buy any. The girls got really upset that there were no socks under the tree. It has become a tradition to buy socks for Christmas. Even though two of my daughters now have families of there own, they still carry on the tradition. we try to buy the funniest or cutest socks we can. This year the twins received Chilly willy and Pink Panther socks.

I have a few pairs of non-white socks, but I buy big packages of white socks all the same, that way when on has a hole in it there is still a match. I can remember when I was little and socks got holes, my mother would get our darning needle and thread and repair them.

I like keeping my feet warm, especially this time of year, so I understand your sock addiction. This reminds me that I need to clean my sock drawer out and get rid of the orphans and holey ones. :-)

edenhills said...

How fun! I love those bright socks. The only problem I have with socks is that they all seem to have holes in them.

Lisa said...

Hmmm obviously you saw my kid LN has the same issue. It's like the socks are calling her and your names. Hehehehe there are worse addications ya know!

Heidi said...

I am still laughing Candy. What a great vice to have. I really like the pair in your photo. Very pretty. Have a Happy New Year.

Farmgirl Susan said...

Too funny. I loved reading this. And I can help! Just send me the pair in the photo. . . ;) Happy New Year! xoxo

Tanya said...

Stephanie said...

Too cute! I love your socks and I am like you, I love socks :) Although, I don't have as many as you.
Happy New Year!

Hugs,
Stephanie

Cute socks! I have to keep mine under control too. Where'd you get your bright ones? Cute!

Marie said...

Candy--I vaguely remembered you telling me your birthday was at the end of December. I said, I think that another friend of mine is just a couple of days after Christmas...we Capricorn babies are the best! :-) So, happy late birthday to you! Love the socks! I don't tend to collect them. Not sure why. This was a cute post!

Kateri said...

Those are pretty! I am just a boring black socks kind of girl. And all the same style. That way I don't have to worry about pairs and matching.

Jennifer said...

Nice problem to have, lol. Cute socks too. I need socks... usually I borrow my husbands, they are warmer than my girl socks.

* I have a problem with yarn... I love yarn. You find if everywhere in my house.

My only problem with socks is I can never find the mate to the kiddos or they are full of holes!
