I've finally found a sock pattern that doesn't drive me bonkers. What about sock patterns drive me bonkers, you ask?
For me to finish a pair of socks in less than 2 years, the pattern has to be:
2) no more than 1 inch of ribbing
3) easy to memorize
4) something I can do during class and still pay attention
I found that pattern last fall when I started these socks:
I picked that sock back up after needing something to work on in a very snooze-worthy class, and woo! Awesome! After I finished that sock, did I start its mate? No! Of course not! I started the mini mochi socks. And finished a pair in two weeks!
This kind of project monogamy is unheard of from me. And I've become obsessed with these socks. So I started another pair, in some Colinette Jitterbug Miss Mocha gave me. And I have been drooling over yarn at Loopy Ewe.
Is this a new strain of the flu? Sock flu? Can I get vaccinated for that? What would a sock vaccination look like?
