Just do something, anything, with those single socks whose mates have gone to the great dryer in the sky (or in the case of knitters sharing my odd sock disorder, those whose mates never quite made it onto the needles).  Whatever you make, it has to be entirely out of socks!  (well, and assorted fastening materials, I suppose.  Unless you want to unravel another sock to get thread to sew them together or something Wink )

I have a huge gift bag that I keep all of my mate-less socks in.  I hate it.  WHERE DO THEY GO?Huh??

I dig the idea.

I do personal swappies!  Just PM me!

I'm also looking for a date to the winter dance...

I love this idea! I always save them, thinking some day I will find that other mate. I know I still have baby single socks, and my youngest is 5.

This would be fun.

I love socks! I had too many pairs of them! I cut the feet out of my old holey and mateless socks last year and saved the "good" parts. For what, you may ask? This challenge!

Am I the only one who wears mismatching socks and pretends like it's totally normal.  I do try and have them be similar shades or colors....

I would love to see other ideas though!  I'm am a fool for socks.

I do that too-wear mismatched socks cuz of the lost sock syndrome! But sometimes I just can't help but show off the fact I'm wearing mismatched socks!!! I find it kinda fun. Like no one knows but me till I show them Wink
