Yes. Socks are very safe. Except for the occaisional stab from a double pointed needle, they cannot do anything to harm you.
I made a pair of socks for Izzy's birthday, and now that she has gotten them, I can share the pictures.

See how safe socks are? They won't try breaking into your apartment at 1am like the guy last night did here. He was very drunk and trashed all the items outside the apartment and then kicked the crap out our neighbor's car. I called the cops and they hauled him off, but the experience was pretty nerve-wracking. I like to think I do well under pressure. It is just after everything is done that I freak out. Freak out is over I think, just sleepy now.
I am just going to stick to my safe socks and stick to my normal, uneventful life. I'm not sure if this has made any sense. I will go over it later after I've gotten more sleep.
