Really, the title says it all

I can't believe it either. I am someone who likes to buy my socks in the plain white variety, 6 in a bag from Walmart. I mean, they go on feet, right? So, I have never felt an interest in knitting socks. I see other people do it, I look at all those needles and pointy ends and I think..."Not for me."

But here's the truth...a way to get me to almost anything...say "I think this will be fun. Let's all do it together."

And like magic, I want to try it, too.

And yes, that would totally include jumping off a bridge if everyone else is doing it.

The only possible counter to this persuasion is to organize me...plan me, tell what I'm going to do and when I'm going to do it. So, I guess we'll see whether or not this "sock-a-long" plan at work affects me. I suspect there may be a sock in my future, but I'm not going to be able to stick with the program.

So yes, I'd jump off the bridge with everyone else, but I'd probably go over the other side.
Just to be different.

You can do this! After all, you did a hat/hats on dpns. Socks are just more engaging than hats because you have more shaping.
I want to see group pictures, and as the designated photographer, you don't even have to be in the picture. BTW, I liked yesterday's picture. =)

"not going to be able to stick with the program??" Sure you are - I'm shopping for my 2 pairs of circular needles today so I can make both socks at the same time. I KNOW I would fall prey to the second sock syndrom. Come on - let's do it!
