I don't know quite what the allure of sock knitting is for me, I know that not all knitters love to knit socks. Some love to knit them but have trouble casting on for the second pair but for me...well I just always seem to have a bad case of startitus when I catch the sock fever coupled with the fact that I love the patterned socks so much more than the plain socks which makes the portability of sock knitting not so great. Though I'm fairly certain my favorite part is actually searching out the perfect sock pattern as the pictures convey them in their finished perfection.
Now I've made these Turkish Bed Socks a couple times...

They're a pretty quick knit as far as socks go and the construction is pretty fascinating. I also have been working on (for longer than I care to admit) a pair of these socks...
So how's that for some sock love? Does it make you find your favorite pair of socks, put them on and curl up with a good book? I know I do! Here's to sock knitting...or finding someone who will knit them for us ;)
