OK, since Thunderhorse54 has gone there, when you sock-stitchers "rock out with your sock out," what are your socks-ual preferences? Are you a hardcore "top-down daddy," or an insouciant "toe-up twinkster"? Or do you swing both ways? Or something else? (Neither from top or toe but sideways?) None of the above: perhaps you are a-socks-ual? Would you say you were born this way or did complex knitting forces mold you in your inclinations? What are the pros and cons of your particular fuzzy proclivity? Inquiring minds want to know!
By the way, you DO know the term for people who lavish this kind of extra-special care and attention on feet . . .
