My sock drawer over-floweth

As some of you already know, Mom has a circular sock machine. That means she can whip up a pair of plain vanilla socks (ribbed or not) in just a few hours.

It's great for knitting up colourways so we can see how they'll turn out. Or getting the stripeys out of the stash quick (cause you're usually only going to knit plain socks anyway) so you can buy more.

But it does have one downside....

... I may need another dresser soon, just for socks....

Or you need a "gift" drawer!

Not the worst problem to have :) Love the colours. Very sherbet-y!

You can NEVER have too many socks. Buy bigger drawers! :-)

I need a bigger drawer for my collection of knitted socks, which I love. But, they are a bit bulky. Maybe all sock knitters face that issue,eh?

Pretty stripy socks!!!

I have been giving a fair number of my socks away (but I don't get nearly as many knit any more anyways!) cuz my sock drawer is pretty darned full. Don't know what I'd do if I had one of those machines! lol
