Why is it that…

…as soon as I get past the heel turn on my sock, I lose interest?

mal bed sock
(basic stockinette bed sock in Malabrigo worsted. toasty, if I ever finish!)

It suddenly feels like an endless project, as if I’m knitting for Sasquatch. And that’s just the first sock..

In other news, I’ll be over at Twisted tomorrow from 10 to noon for a reception for Created in Oregon: A Knitter’s Datebook 2012. The trunk show is already there, and will be there through Sunday. My Rockaway Beach Beanie/Cowl is there, along with 11 other fabulous designs from Oregon designers. Come on by!

  1. I’m so lucky I’ve never suffered second sock syndrome. Love that cowl!

  2. I tell you I would have been on the boat if it weren’t for knitting two-at-a-time! You ought to try it :D Lovely cowls.

    I was bummed that I missed Coastal Knits trunk show last week…and now Created in Oregon. Shoot! I will be over there next weekend? Why can’t I time hubby’s travel better LOL Have fun and sell lotsa of copies:D

  3. Yup, been there with the “losing interest” part–not so much with the sock itself, but more with starting the second sock.

  4. I’ve been having that problem too! Though I also realized I had screwed up the gusset increases, and had to take out several rounds. So not feeling as motivated to finish the sock… Love your color choices though :)
