Why knitting socks is better than knitting sweaters

Irie’s Fascinating Life: 10 reasons why socks are better than sweaters is a very amusing blog entry.

I agree – in the last 18 months I have knitted 3 pairs of socks. I don’t think I have knitted 3 sweaters in my life (well, finished them, anyway!), and definitely haven’t worn them! I once knitted an aran sweater – it took me two years; I used to wear it when I was a student but it makes me look too fat these days…

    I knitted ONE pair of socks in 1957: argyle, with knots on the bottoms because who knew you weren’t supposed to tie knots? For a boyfriend who dumped me at my own Sweet 16 party for a friend of mine. So much for knitting sox! I’ll stick to sweaters, thank you.
    Your postcard will go in the mail tomorrow. And because I’m mailing it instead of sending it, you’re entitled to a bonus or a refund. Stay tuned.

    I have yet to knit a sweater — I did buy a pattern though — but I have finished several pairs of socks. They are so warm and toasty to wear in the winter!
