Sock flu

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:

1) entertaining

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?

*Sorry about my lack of pictures.  My CMS is acting up, and I'm too tired to try and figure out what's wrong right now. It's midterms, yo!
