A Happy Laundry Basket

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

I love socks. I love the color turquoise. When I first learned to knit socks in 2001, it was very hard to find turquoise sockyarn. I’ve been having better luck lately, which delights me.

At our house, we do a “turquoise load” and a “fuschia/purple load” of laundry when we wash our clothes. Last time I ran the turquoise load, these came out together:

You know, I figure this is all I need to be happy: a load with seven pairs of turquoise, handknit socks, made just for me! How much better could life get?

The first pair at left was knit in January 2004, the second pair 2003. I do have a list with all my socks numbered… I’m sometimes messy but in that area I’m quite detailed. These socks span from my 69th pair to my 163rd pair. Cool, huh?

I think I can create spring in my laundry basket. Life is good.
