Socks, we all need them and we can wear them year round especially where I live. Sweaters, not so much, especially when the temperature seems to hover over 95 degrees during the summer months.
When I first learned how to knit, if I were to knit something they were going to be on big needles, afterall, I like instant gratification. In fact one of the first gifts I made were some socks knit on size US 8/5mm, they were knit flat and then seamed.
The thought of knitting on needles smaller than a US 5/3.75mm was something that I just did not want to do.
Fast forward four years and I think I have made at least twenty pair. Some for me but mostly for others.
Here is a pic of some of the most recent socks I finished.

My next project big/main project will be something other than socks, though I probably will have a pair on the needles for the mindless Michelle's in the passenger seat knit.
