Ask the Geeks -
Originally asked/answered in 2018:
Rebecca asks:
I am researching old podcasts. In episode 19 you talked about the word create for your word of the year. Goal was to knit enough socks so you would not have to wear store bought. Have you accomplished this? May we have a virtual tour of your sock drawer? Lol. How many socks have you knit in your lifetime? Do you wear store socks? What are your favorite shoes for handmade socks?
