Why Knit Socks?

Socks on a Plane KAL at MHF

I used to wonder why people were so enthused about knitting socks. Socks? Why would you spend all that time to knit socks when you can buy them at Walmart for a couple bucks? I don’t wonder that anymore. And my feet have thanked me for it! I’ve been thinking about this because our next …
