A mini-update on the FLK socks: I'm nearing the cuff on the second sock, which makes me very happy. I don't really get that second sock syndrome a lot of people talk about. My sister has switched to doing socks two-at-a-time on two circulars for that very reason, but I prefer to knit my socks on DPNs. The way I see it is that doing two at a time means twice as much to rip out when you make a mistake in the pattern or in the sizing -- having to rip out happens to me a lot, sadly. I think that when I see the first sock is finished, I get really excited because that' s more than half the work done: exactly half the knitting, and all of the figuring out, all the ripping and re-knitting, all the measuring. All that's left is a bunch of easy knitting, because you're just copying the first sock. I hope to finish the second sock this week, and I've already got plans to cast on for my next pair (of course): it will be another in the same pattern, which is a wonderful project for travel/car/visiting/catching up on Orange is the New Black because it's so rhythmic. And my husband needs more socks, as I'm trying to build up his hand-knitted sock collection.
Although I've spent my share of time getting sucked into the black hole of clickbait articles on the Internet, I'm not normally into reposting listicles. This one really struck a nerve, though -- it's extra funny because it's true! I'm so obsessed with knitting I try to keep knitting while I make dinner, and I find that I can't leave the house without at least one project, if not two, in my purse. Even if it's just to go to the park...where I won't have a chance to sit down and knit anyway.
All but two really apply to me, which I guess puts me in the deep end of the knitting pond. How many apply to you?
