I'm trying to follow my own advice for beating second sock syndrome by wearing the first of my May socks. But I'm afraid I'll succumb to startitis (and second sock syndrome by proxy) thanks to plans for a fun market bag that I can't wait to design -- for this project it looks like I'll be a product knitter. (I really want the bag.) I also still haven't cast on yet for the Baby Surprise Jacket knit along that will probably be over before I'm ready to start!
Row after row of stockinette just isn't doing it for me right now, despite how nicely the striping is coming out and how perfectly the two striped socks are matching each other (YES!). (For a better look at the actual yarn colors, see this week's Yarn Along post on Creating a Family Home.)
I don't know if I'll meet the May 31 deadline on the socks, and I don't think I'm making it any easier on myself to get the second sock done with the cotton yarn for the market bag staring me down from the coffee table. Sigh. What would you do?
In the background you can see I'm watching Dual Survival on the Discovery Channel. I really love that show!
