Naughty Green Socks

From the cast on edge and all the way down the leg to the beginning of the heel flap, the Naughty Green Socks have 3,864 stitches*. Each.Maybe I didn't need to know that.

______
*I had the numbers wrong - they actually have 4,416 stitches. EACH.

Would that be per sock or per pair? ( Actually, I probably already know the weary answer to that!)

Yikes. I guess us sock knitters are gluttons for punishment, lol.

So, in the middle of the night do you wake up with a brain worm saying, " 3,173 . . . 3,174 . . . 3,175 . . . "

Ok, step away from the calculator. Now get some wine... There you go. Isn't that better?

There are lovely though. Counting stitches has not helped me with my last two projects. I just get discouraged!

Jumpin' Jupiter, Jane...don't you know, we're supposed to count rounds, not stitches?!

Exactly what I was told when I counted the stitches in a pair of socks last fall.

Didn't help, until I discovered 6-ply sock yarn!

That's enough to scare me off doing socks for a while...

So glad you told me - I then have many cozy stitches to knit in each pair of socks I knit:-)
