Um, not really.

My arms & body almost NEVER sweat or warm up quickly for that reason. It could be in the 70's and I would still be comfortable wearing long sleeve clothes. However, my feet sweat like crazy when covered even if its below freezing outside (like today). My mom is the complete opposite. Her feet are always cold yet arms and body remain warm.

It might be hard to believe, but is the truth.

Make sure your shoes are breathable leather or mesh. You might have to powder your feet to control the dampness -- that's probably what makes you itchy. You can also, when sitting at your desk slip your shoes off and let your feet dry up a little.

Nope -- Tally (short for Tallulah) is the cat we picked up when she was about 2-3 weeks old from the streets. I had to wake up to feed her kitten formula every night for a week and rub her with a warm washcloth to make her "go". She's 12 years old now, and is the closest thing to a daughter I will have. Cats are like having two year olds forever. She spends a lot of her time glued to me.

Which is why I go by Tallysmom.

Possum is the warmest, to dispute a claim a few pages back. I actually have a pair. I enjoy collecting weird items, but I don't much enjoy wearing warm socks. I do really like the feel of silk socks, but their lack of durability has irked me. Argyle is pretty, and I was tempted to buy some while shopping today. Other than that, socks are a nuisance for me, and I think people should go barefoot at home if the temperature allows it.

We use vinegar for every load of laundry.

For the record if I have to wear socks in the morning then take them off when I get home then end up going out again later, I put on a clean pair of socks.
I NEVER wear the same pair of socks after they have been on my feet once until after they are washed again.
