Miss A wears socks inside her tennies and during the school year she would often come over without socks, or with one sock. We wear the same size shoes so she's prone to borrow both my socks and my shoes (if she can get away with that!)
I have noticed that when she wears my socks, I often never see them again! Since we get her morning laundry which is mainly pajamas, and her evening laundry gets washed at home, I have no clue where the socks go unless she happens to bring them over.
We discussed that the other day with her mom. It would appear from that conversation that the socks have gone into the black hole of kid laundry, where sometimes they come back and sometimes they don't! But if it's any comfort, her mother's socks have joined mine in that mystery place...
I particularly love hand knitted socks. I have successfully (more or less) knit three pairs of socks and quite a number of single socks that never became pairs. I guess I have Second Sock Syndrome, that is, I can knit one but I have trouble finishing the second one, or getting it to match the first one so that they can legitimately be called a pair.

I have knit a couple of pairs of yoga socks... which leave off the hard parts like heels and toes!

I can't decide between two yarns. I love the blue one in the center but it's really skinny yarn and would take longer to knit, but the black & white is already wound into a cake. I'm leaning in that direction, although the blue would make beautiful socks!
I just found out I am supposed to be knitting a test swatch of the yarn I pick, then wash and dry it before class! If Miss E gets up and decides we need to go shopping that will cut in on the swatching time and narrow the choice to the one swatch I can actually finish.
Boy this knitting stuff could be stressful!
