So, for today's pick-a-pile we have unmatched socks. I will report back when I have them matched (warning, it cold be years). The picture really doesn't do it justice. There are probably one hundred socks there. (which I guess is only 10 socks per person, that doesn't sound as bad...)Well, if you read the above post, you know that many of my dear socks did not find their mates yet, but some did have a happy reunion.
The large pile in the middle is Raelea's. Don't take this to mean that she loses the most socks. Some of those socks have been missing their mates since Emily was that size :)
For those that are curious about what I do with all the (still) lonely socks, I put them in a bag and pull them out again at a later date (say after someone has cleaned out under their bed or moved a book shelf). They frequently will find their mate given enough time. Of course, they don't fit anyone's feet by then, but they are happily reunited nontheless.
