I have kind of a thing for tights and knee socks. I keep forgetting how many I've bought already and Sock-Dreams.com is based out of Portland, so consequently I am at the point of needing a dedicated dresser for it all. And I'm more or less okay with that. But this site is going to be a real problem in the near future.

Maybe some other people would enjoy having this problem with me and then I wouldn't feel too bad.

I'm a guy, so I don't rock the tights, but most of my socks are knee socks. I love them. :D

Last time I needed yellow tights (Halloween long past), I just used a pair of white ones and some RIT dye. Did the job!

Nice!

I just bought some socks from Naked City the other week. A little pricey but they're good quality. I'm sure you've pillaged those already.

I was there pretty recently, but I only bought socks for other people. What do your socks look like? Are they totally sweet?

I have these black and brown polka-dotty ones which are my favorite, a bright orange pair, and an argyle pair. My roommate has like everything from there, obviously, and she's got these knitted yellow tights I really want.

Man, I also want new winter boots.

...All these things I shouldn't be thinking about!

I'm going to be having this problem with you, probably.

Vera,

I own nine pairs of stripey socks.

This is not counting the other assorted crazy socks.

It is becoming dangerous.

I have more than you (just knee socks, not counting regular). I'm counting them up in my head and I keep going, "oh, yeah, I forgot about the greeeen ones..." so I'm just going to stop trying to count.

Ahhhh I love knee highs and tights! That site is awesome, I can never find tights in the colors I want. Thanks for the link

I'm moving to Portland in a few weeks. Should I start acquiring decidedly un-masculine socks? ♥

My secret weakness is a lady wearing those super-high rainbow socks that have the individual toes.

yellow tights

I'm just a friendly lurker... but in case you were still on the hunt for yellow tights, you might try alloy.com. They have a set of three (red, blue, yellow) for less than a pair on the site you linked (quality aside). As someone who's also nearing the point of having a dedicated dresser, I thought you'd like to know. :)

Oh man... that's a pretty good deal. I will think on it. I'm kind of big on quality. But they look okay.

Geeze, I should go give some money to charity or something...

yeah, I've been wearing a lot of tights this season. I'm actually a little bit comforted whenever Sock Dreams is sold out - at least other people want that shit more than me. Possibly you.

Still cheaper than pants.. right?

It gets worse when you have to touch all the expensive, bunny fluff, bright merchandise all the time.

Target, weirdly enough, has some killer teal/turquoise opaque tights. They have a pretty good section actually. As does Freddy's. Clearly, I got into the industry at the right time.

i love socks so much that i've started making sock creatures to excuse more purchases of socks!
my favourites are stripeys and hand-knitted wool socks. in the winter, something i often delight in is wearing a pair of wools over the stripeys (n_n)

You might enjoythis pattern (http://www.knitting-crochet.com/messto.html) that I found one day but have yet to attempt... in any case your knitting skillz are far superior to mine so you will probably have better luck than I will, lol.
