Second Sock Syndrome

Second sock syndrome has hit before I even finished the first sock. This sock followed me from Toronto, to Athens, to Germany and the Peloponnese this past fall always in my backpack waiting to be knit. I did give it a few rows from time to time but my heart just wasn't in it.

Now I don't know if it's the pattern which is called Dolomite or if it's the yarn which is Patons Stretch Socks and is a really nice light summer yarn. But the bottom line is I'm either going to frog this sock or hide it away somewhere to maybe be resurrected someday.

I used my hand dyed yarn to make a pair of fingerless gloves and a hat. I just can't find the darn hat right now so no picture. I don't know where it's hiding but it probably saw me coming with the camera and got shy, sigh...

Les you think I cant finish things, yes I can... Nice plain vanilla socks.


I'm also working furiously on a striped cardigan for my sweetie which I'd like to get finished before Christmas. It's a toss up right now if I'll make it.

My money is on you getting to the finish on the cardigan. Good luck. You aren't alone with the sock thing-I still have a pink pair that I started for the 3 day and haven't finished and a rust colored pair. 1 done and 1 not even a glimmer of a thought until you brought this up. Love the mitts.

I have a distinct feeling that I might have SS syndrome with the Pomatomus socks I've started.

Good luck with the cardi.

I am still working on my very first pair of socks, and I am at the heel part. I really want to finish these and learn how to make socks. I understand how you get so far on a project and just lose the desire to complete them. I have many projects like that! However your socks look so nice I do hope they get completed.
I am really enjoying the knitting I have gotten into!

Thanks guys, I am working so hard on that cardigan but with less than two weeks to I'm doubtful. I have other stuff on the needles too to get finished...
