I’m proud of my sock collection. Very proud. So proud that I will point them out, even if that means pulling up a pant leg.
I was recently packing and decided to take inventory of this impressive grouping of socks. While my intention was really to create a sql database, I decided a spreadsheet was good enough. (And I didn’t want to make Derek Willis cringe at how rusty I was — I would’ve had an awkward Gchat conversation where I ask for help and say “hey derek, i’m doing some car looking at my socks…”)
So here are my findings:
Length: In total, I have 30 pairs of socks. Of those, 16 pairs are knee-high socks, two pairs are thigh-high, the rest are ankle high.
Pattern: 10 pairs have stripes, five have argyle, 12 are a solid color and the rest don’t fall into the previous categories (polka dots, for instance).
Color: White is the most common color among my socks with 16 pairs having some of it (whether the color was dominant or not). This is followed by gray, black, pink, blue, purple/green (tied), red, orange and yellow, respectively.
Conclusion: As much as I complained about Chicago winters, I really liked my socks.
