Friday Five: Five things we've learned from sock knitting

1. We don't buy sock yarn that matches our clothes; we buy sock yarn that matches our hearts.
2. Matching doesn't necessarily mean identical.
3. We know going into it that if we're knitting these socks for a gift, there is a 100% chance that the gift will eventually be worn out -- and we're okay with that.
4. We are convinced that as we knit socks for a sick friend, the love and pieces of ourselves that we put into the knitting will keep our loved ones from further illness.
5. It's okay to make mistakes; nothing that goes wrong is all that earth-shattering, and anyway, it'll probably be hidden by your shoes.
