Socks never to be forgotten

Last night I had to bid goodbye to the first pair of socks I ever made for myself, out of Fortissima Socka Disco Colori (one of my favorite yarns because it sparkles). Both socks had irreparable holes in them, due to constant washing machine and dryer exposure over the last 2 years ( I only machine washed and dried those socks BTW) and almost-constant wear.
However, the passing of these socks simply signifies the purpose of knitting socks all the time ( in my world at least) because socks have a lifespan and a meaning. They go on the feet, and are meant to be worn (out) with the passing of time. Farewell my first sockies, I will remember you always!
