I‘ll never forget the first time I tried on a pair of socks I hadknit myself. I made my first pair mostly out of curiosity–Iwanted to know what all the fuss was about! Sure, socks arefun to knit, but they are just SOCKS, right? They go on yourfeet. Inside your shoes, yet. Five bucks would get me threepair at the store, so why spend time knitting them?And so I dubiously tried on that first pair... and somethingmagical happened. I looked down at my feet, dressed upin pretty sock yarn and clever stitch patterns, and I wiggledmy toes and realized: There are no seams rubbing inside myshoes. The heel fits. The yarn feels GOOD against my skin,all woolly and soft. These are PRETTY...and they‘re WARM.I confess that I even slept in that first pair, because I couldhardly bear to take them off. I slipped off my shoes nowand then throughout the day, just to admire my socks. AndI started imagining what it would be like to have an entirewardrobe of handknit socks, socks to match everythingin my closet. (OK, not so tough, since everything I wear ispurple/black/blue/green, but still.)And so it was that I discovered, as so many knitters beforeme have discovered, the joy of wearing—as veteran sockdesigner Ann Budd would say–“a little bit of luxury everyday.” There‘s nothing quite like a pair of socks fresh off yourneedles...

I’m not much of a lingerie type of gal. Most days I can’t even be bothered to hang earrings in the holes in my earlobes. So I had a little trouble getting my head around the lingerie theme for this staff  project . . . until I realized that I do like to lounge on the couch while I knit orread. And I do love socks. So I decided to make a pair of special lounging socks.The yarn, conveniently named Seduction, is a mixture of merino and tencel that’swarm, comfortable, silky soft, and strong.
