Gotta say, while most people think this is a really cool idea, there have been a few who've asked if I'm crazy. Although I've never considered myself "crazy", I'm sure some of my ideas and thoughts over the years have been a little "out there". So to answer the question, I don't believe I'm crazy BUT, you can ask me when I'm a few months into the project and I may have a different answer.
Received a single sock yesterday and 1 button from a friend - this one should be interesting... Stick around folks and see what I can create!
