I don't consider myself a sock knitter. I have knitted only one pair of (grown up) socks in my life, a pair of toe-up monkeys. I sort of liked it when I was knitting it. I often do like the things I do while doing them. But socks don't tempt me. I'd rather knit a handful of gloves. Maybe I just think gloves are a lot cooler than socks. But the Skew pattern makes me so curious I might actually knit a sock again one day. Wow!
