Chilblains Socks

I have managed to get chilblains once again. Though now that I know that I contract popular diseases from the 1800s I can combat it easier. If I was really on top of it, I’d have taken precautions earlier.

I work in a shop that has a basement open to the cold and a cement floor. I also don’t turn the heat up because my middle name is Ebenezer. The way I need to combat it is not allow my feet to get wet and cold. No sweating allowed. Which means I need to change shoes and slippers throughout the day. Maybe even socks depending on what’s going on with my feet.

We all know that wool socks are the best anyway but they wick away the moisture to help keep my feet dry. Sure there are herbal things I do for my feet once the chilblains hits but I also need more socks. I put the sweater away and started on the socks that are long languishing and half finished until I really need them.

I had another pair started (ok, we all know I actually have like 12 pair half started). I started to work on those and managed to finish one sock, then cast on for the other…

Then started another pair.

Because it’s clearly a sickness, this not finishing socks thing. Most of those one sock wonders I posted about haven’t been finished. Maybe when I finish my red pair, I’ll actually pick up an old one sock wonder, a new unfinished sock project (yes there are new ones not in that linked post). Or more likely, I’ll just cast on for yet something else.

    I don’t even want to count the number of half pairs and started socks I have. You should play along with Summer of Socks next year. Of course, that’s where I start most of my socks. 😳

    Boo, that doesn’t sound fun at all – stay as warm as you can. Finished socks is a good thing, and yours are always beautiful :-)

  3. Maybe you should just plan on knitting single socks and wearing the mismatched ones….
