The older I get, the more I tend to play it safe. I'm in bed early, I drink plenty of water and I always wear a helmet on a bike.
My main hobby is playing with yarn and I like making friends online who share this interest, so I spend a lot of time over on Ravelry.
I'm in a few groups there, and especially enjoy one called Sock Knitter's Anonymous, where every month there is a theme to help motivate the sock making.
This month's challenge is to make cuff-down socks.
Wide open theme.
Surely I could come up with something other than basic vanilla ribbed socks? Well, sort of. But not really.
I tend to avoid bright clothes, but I am starting to give myself permission to go nuts with the socks.
I don't know how to use this yarn except in the most basic way.
I don't know quite what I was thinking when I picked up the yarn in the first place.
I don't know how to admit the electricity of these socks make me smile.
I imagine when I wear them later on, I can hide them under some long jeans and then no one will know herein lurks the craziest socks of all time.
