Regular readers may remember me mentioning a few times lately that I have not been in a sock knitting mood at all lately. Second sock syndrome (SSS) struck my socks and boyfriend's socks - both of which are awaiting their seconds.
As for my brother's sock, well that hasn't even progressed past the toe on sock one! However that's probably got as much to do with the fact that the yarn is hurting my skin as my sock lethargy *sighs*
So, how am I approaching this growing pile of lonely single socks?
Uh, yeah... Casting on more socks *laughs*
However, I haven't gone completely mad. I decided that I needed a bit of a kick and that knitting socks 2 at a time would be the ideal solution to my SSS issues.
Check it out, two sock toes, no tangles *grins* This might turn out to be an excellent idea ;)
I'm also wondering if these socks might work for my brother (as I've had to give up on his thanks to the yarn issues)... I'm not sure if it's a little too girly though. Mum? What do you reckon?
Update - consensus seems to be that they are definitely too girly. Damn. Ok, new plan for brother's socks required *laughs*
