My Favorite Socks?

You know I live socks, handknit socks to be precise. I knit them like a fiend. I wear them like a zealot! So you may be shocked to know that this is my favorite pair ----

I do have a favorite handknit pair, but as for my overall favorite, your looking at them! They're the ones I want to put on on a Friday night after a long week, they're the ones the I reach for after swimming in freezing water at the cabin.

Strange isn't it? So that begs the question --- What are your favorite socks? Are they handknit or commercial?

Redd is already enjoying his weekend---

These are some of my favorite pictures of Redd.

I'm looking forward to a weekend of knitting, listening to podcasts, and relaxing.

There might even be a few blog posts!

Have a great weekend!

The only time I wear commercial socks is when I wear gym socks for walking. Other than that, I wear hand knit socks all the time.

My all time favorite pair is hard to pick out but right now with the cold weather I'd have to say the my Bearfoot socks are the coziest.

Awwww, Redd. Look at his little face. <3

To answer your question, my favourite socks are the first ones I knit for myself and kept--they're getting a little scraggly-looking, but they're like comfort food for my feet when I've had a rough day.

awww, baby kitty redd!!!

my favorite pair is not handknit because i dont have any :( lol i have 3/4 of a sock knit and its currently sitting in my wip basket downstairs.

i hardly ever wear socks. so maybe i should count my favorite socks as a pair of pink fur- lined uggs! in the fall to winter, i wear them 24-7 running errands. they are so soft and comfy.

I can't believe the cuteness of Redd - what an adorable little furry face!!!
As for socks, your favorite ones seem to be the perfect non-handknit socks indeed - actually exactly like the ones I'm searching for since a long, long time - unfortunately I didn't have the luck yet to find them! So, in the meantime my fave pair of socks are handknit ones, the "River Rapids Socks" that I'm wearing right now.

My favorite pair to wear is a pair of red Mountain Colors Bearfoot socks. However, every time I wash them, they bleed profusely, so they are a pain. Not only do I have to handwash them, but I have to handwash them solo. I would love to knit another pair, but that inconvenience holds me back and makes me use other yarns.
