My plan is to mostly stick to sewing/crafting topics with a little bit about my family. Today, however, I'm going to air my dirty laundry a little bit - literally. I’m going to share one of my quirks, eccentricities, whatever you want to call it.
Toe seams in socks are the bane of my existence! There! I said it! It’s out in the open! Whew….
I detest them. It never fails that if there is a seam in a sock, it will hit my foot in the wrong place. Then it will rub and make foot hurt. The little knot at the end of the seam that hits your little toe is the worst offender. Most people look at me like I’m crazy when I mention this problem I have with socks. Chief Blessings tries unsuccessfully to hide it when laughs at me.
This quirk of mine makes me dread shopping for socks. I’ll find a brand I like and then they stop making it. I’ve found some great ones for running, but they are a little pricey for my
cheap frugal side.
The other day, I desperately needed some more socks. But, lo and behold, I found a package that said “SMOOTH TOE SEAMS”. Not only that, but they had a handy dandy hole in the package for you to feel the seam yourself. It’s like the company could read my mind. I’ve been wearing them the last couple of days and have to say they are probably the most comfortable socks I have worn in a long time. I think I might have to go get some more just in case they quit selling them. I wonder if I could get some money for the company for advertising.
So, how about y’all? Do toe seams drive you crazy? Have you even ever noticed the seams? Do you have other “dirty laundry” you would like to air for the viewing audience?
Now back to our regularly scheduled programming…..
