I was sock-shopping at FredMeyer's today. Plain old single-colored socks. Best price was 6 pairs of socks for $11.99, which I thought was way high until I saw some of the other prices, like 6 pair for $15. Worst was *a single pair of socks* for $15! That's $7.50 for each sock, which is ridiculous considering the company probably spent 25 cents making the damn thing. They weren't even anything fancy like silk, either. Just cotton and/or polyester, as far as I could tell. Please tell me nobody actually pays that much for socks, please? Even 6 pair for $12 was too high for me. I ended up getting some at Winco, where I got eight pair for less than $10.

$15 is ridiculous for one pair of socks in any currency, except maybe Yen and Rupiah, but the AUD isn't worth that much less than the USD, and I don't thing $2 a pair is dreadful -- if anything, I've never seen adult socks any cheaper, and most of the $2 ones I've seen were dreadful quality.

I have a thing about socks. Actually I have three things about socks. The first thing about socks is I love crazy socks. I wear long flowing gowns most of the time and I love to wear the most outrageous socks under them, so that people just get a peek of the hilarity should the breeze lift the top of my gown over an ankle boot.

My second thing about socks is I don't like the quality of cheap ones and I resent spending the money on good ones.

My third thing about socks is that I find knitting them soooooo boooooooring.

My friends know what a sock fiend I am, and how I will not buy good quality crazy socks for myself.

Guess what I get for Christmas (big grin)!

Re: Sockitome
We have three things in common then! :-D Well, I have a fourth thing in that I don't know how to knit.
