So, what can one do with odd socks, besides throw them out? I would like to be recycling-minded with the 11 odd socks which I discovered when I sorted ALL my socks yesterday.

Any child in your family. You can make puppets with them.

There is a very silly and popular child puppet show in Chile, one of its character is "calcetín con rombosman" (Rhombusman sock)

Try this ...

Of course you can also choose to wear odd socks occasionally, e.g. round the house, until they wear out.

Best ever for dusting, old mateless socks are. So much easier to slip one over your hand and just grab / wipe things than fluffing about with a feather or rag duster. And then you just throw it in the wash and grab another one as often as you need it.
