Summer, Socks, and Startitis

Today has been the hottest day of the year topping out at 102° yet here I am working on wool socks. Really that should say sock since the chance of the second sock ever being knit is slim to none.  Normally I knit socks two at a time, because that is the only way I’ve ever finished a matching pair.  This sock was cast on in haste as I needed a brainless project for a trip I took a few weeks ago.  I was flying half way across the country for my cousin’s wedding and needed a project to take with me.  The projects I had going were either too large or complex for the trip so I went to my old standby- vanilla socks.

Now I had ANOTHER vanilla sock finished from a vacation I took in May.  One might think “Oh, this would be a good time to make that second sock.”, but that is not what went through my brain. Oh no, startitis is something I struggle with daily and when you have a rather large amount of sock yarn sometimes a skein just calls your name.

I can’t be the only one who has a collection of single socks or a collection of sock yarn calling out to you.  Please tell me there are those of you like me that have a drawer full of single socks just waiting for their mate to be made.  Mine might as well give up since I’ve started wearing them mismatched.  They say opposites attract right???
