Too much sharing, you say? Whatever. I think it's fun.
There are a lot of knitters participating, so a lot of the socks will be hand made. While I also knit socks, I'm not wearing any that I made today. (They don't have to be hand made; the only rule is that someone has to be wearing the socks in the photo.) Today I'm wearing my Injinji toe socks. I can't imagine trying to knit toe socks. Tiny yarn and tiny needles so they won't be too thick between my toes, but I digress. These toe socks aren't just trendy and cute, they are a vital part of my marathon training. I tend to curl my toes when I run, gripping the shoe I guess. That isn't a problem on short runs, but once I get over 10 miles or so, my toes start to hurt. Sometimes I get blisters. These socks help keep my toes straight. I don't know how they do it, because they aren't stiff or anything, they just do.

I have approximately 459287543 pairs of Injinji toe socks. If I had known we were going to post pictures today, I would have worn my rainbow striped ones. Maybe next week.
