How many socks?

This is my first and last try at koolaid dying yarn. I had some while yarn that I wanted to use for socks but white yarn and little kids don't really mix so I dyed them. My fingers were more red than the socks and I can't say I was wowed with the results.
And this is my collection of socks for CIC. Wanna take a guess how many?
No I'm not addicted to sock knitting. I can stop any time. Really I can. Yup any time.

Holy wow! I can't believe how many socks you've knit! How long does it each one take you?

Wow!! that is great, just think of all those warm little feet. What a great blessing you are to those little ones. And your kool aid socks look great too. I need to get busy on some CIC socks. I have a few vests ready but no socks yet for this challenge.

OH, and I am going to guess about 130 pair of socks.

WOW!!!! you go! I've only knit 5 pairs in a little over a year!!! I'm impressed!!! There are going to be a LOT of happy little feet in those socks.

I think the kool-aide dye looks nice! if you do it again, try making stripes. I did a food color dyed striped soaker with pics on my blog.

What a wonderful gift. There will be a lot of toasty toes this winter. I am ashamed to say that I have not knitted any socks for CIC ...yet. You have motivated me. Thank you.
