Socks and Ham Sandwiches

You know how food tastes better if someone else has prepared it for you? Especially sandwiches, I think. I have no idea where this phenomenon comes from, but its true. I can make a ham and cheese sandwich, and then have husband make the same exact one, and his will taste better, just because I didn't make it. Am I weird in that regard?

I think its true for socks as well. Don't get me wrong, I love my socks that I've knit for myself, but some of the magic is lost when you are intimately familar with each and every stitch that went into them.

These are the sock equivalent of hubby's ham sandwich:

These are my Townsend-Sock Swap socks from my parner Diane. They are made from Lorna's Laces, in an unknown colorway and the pattern is Hatsuyo's Lacy Sock from the Sole
Solution 2003/2004 Design Collection. Not one I'd seen before and very nice, a little lacey, but not too holey. Truly beautiful.

These are awesomely soft and lucious (much more so than a ham sandwich), and I'm so happy they are mine. Thank you Diane!

PS: In the fall and winter, I am sadly never home during daylight hours on the days that I work, so you will all have to suffer crappy lighting photos from me if I decide to post on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays. I'm already longing for the long days - I've got a long ways of longing ahead.

I SO agree with you about the sandwiches!

mine taste ... boring.
those made with the same ingredients by almost anyone else... taste great!

What IS up with that?

I agree..things taste a lot better when I don't have to cook it, or clean it afterwards, LOL.

The socks look really nice, I love the color.

And I've always thought I was just a bad sandwich maker. Good to know that it isn't just me. Cute socks - I'm sure you'll get lots of wear out of them. We're all in the same boat on the pictures so don't worry.

Yes, I think it is true about socks as well. Maybe this is why I don't knit them that much?!
