...because I love to knit socks.
...because I have more sock yarn stashed than should be allowable by law.
...because someone created very cool buttons for the event, and if I post one here...
...it almost looks like I have a picture in this post.
So...a month of hand-knit sock lovin'. Rock on!
ETA...the button links to the Socktoberfest Ravelry group...if you're not on Ravelry (why aren't you??), you can also read about it here at it's creator's blog.
