I finished another pair of socks. That makes 25 pairs in the last 18 months, 25 pairs since I decided to dabble in socks knitting. It started innocently, with a training sock, but quickly spiralled into full-blown sock addiction and I’ve been turning them out at a rate of over a pair a month ever since ….
