I love socks. I’m probably the only autistic person on the planet who loves them. I especially like bright colourful ones and ones with animals on. I currently have over 40 and my aim is to reach 100. Imagine 100 pairs of socks 😮 sounds like heaven.
This is what my sock drawer looks like:
I love lining them up. I like my socks to be neat and tidy. I wear them in a certain order so each pair gets the chance to be worn.
For my birthday my mother-in-law bought me some new socks. I was very excited. Here’s some pics of them:
It’s so exciting getting new socks. I’ve currently wearing the pale purple pair on the bottom row.
For most autistic people, socks are a source of discomfort. When I was younger they were for me too, I used to hate wearing them and (shudder) used to wear shoes without any socks. I don’t know what changed, I think it was in my late teens/early 20’s. It was a period of great change for me so it seems to have been something else that changed too, but for the better. I can’t imagine not wearing socks everyday, I love them. Every shop I go into I’m tempted to buy more.
I could talk about socks everyday. I love putting freshly cleaned socks away and admiring them in their lines in the sock drawer. If I could I would create a storage device which would have my socks in one big long line, with a bit at the bottom where you can take a pair at a time. A bit like in vending machines with one item coming out of the bottom at a time. I could put new socks in at the top and get them out at the bottom. I’d design my whole bedroom wardrobe around it.
I love collecting and wearing my socks. I could never get tired of trying on new ones. I suppose it’s a bit like some people’s fondness for shoes. I’d have a sock wardrobe and model socks. My fav colours are purple, black, grey and bright blue. My favs are stripy. One pair I have has the cutest little heghogs on them. I have Christmas/winter ones which I wear all year around. I have Superdry ones. Not one single pair I own are just plain black or white, those are boring, I have some one colour ones and loads of multi-colour/multi-patterned ones.
I love socks.
