Another Pair of Socks?

How many pair of hand knit socks can one person have?  You can only wear one pair at a time.  And if you needed to wear a pair every day, which I don't, why do you keep knitting socks?  Can we call it an obsession!?? 
Here is the yarn for the this pair of socks--never knitted with this brand before. 
I usually begin my socks on four double pointed needles

transfer to two circular needles, knit to heel and once again back to pointy sticks

The pattern is designed by general-hogbuffer and is called "Bovary"
You can find this pattern--where else?? but on Ravelry! 

“Madame Bovary (1856) is the French writer Gustave Flaubert’s debut novel. The story focuses on a doctor’s wife, Emma Bovary, who has adulterous affairs and lives beyond her means in order to escape the banalities and emptiness of provincial life. Though the basic plot is rather simple, even archetypal, the novel’s true art lies in its details and hidden patterns.” ( Wikipedia )
We are heading to the toe!!
