trying to stay the course

it all starts so innocently ... the making of a socken mate. i mean, it's an easy pattern. i already made one, so there's no guesswork regarding what to do.

but, perhaps this particular socken is being made too soon after the completion of socken #1 ? perhaps this socken is cursed. or maybe, i have the attention span of a gnat? or, maybe, this yarntini is too irresistible ?

i've tried this before. but this time, i am using 2.5mm turbos (and knitting the smaller jaywalker). this time it's the right size! i am still considering changing to a smaller needle for the foot portion though.

The colors and striping of that yarntini are both lovely and hard to resist. I think you're just motivated to finally have success with this pair.

ohhh La la!!
Love those colors!
Maybe you could convince Stuart to knit your sokken mates?

heh heh - you can never resist the pull of a new sock.... :)

Naturally - I love, love the yarntini - given my own profile picture:) I hope you find success! Though I am a firm believer in a socks singles club.
