A Pair of...

Okay. I understand a ...

...pair of socks. I mean, after all, there are TWO socks. Two separate generally matching entities.

I don't understand a...
...pair of slacks. I mean, who would wear two 'slacks'? Yep, two legs, but one waist, one back, one front, one butt, etc. Oh, wait...a butt is a pair of cheeks isn't it? ;o) But still, why a 'pair of slacks'?

Oh, well. Not worth losing sleep over.

But this is what made me think about it...I completed another pair of socks. I finished the second toe on the way back from San Antone yesterday and grafted the toe closed with a kitchener stitch.

They are made with Knit Picks Peruvian wool sock yarn. Yep, hand wash...lay flat to dry.

Sherry those look great. I never could get the hang of knitting. But I would love to learn.
