Yup! I finally completed one sock in the Purple Sock pair, over month after I started them. The reason why it took so long? I burned myself out on them, quite simply.
For about three weeks that incomplete sock had been starting at me on my project pile. Taunting me. Provoking me. Finally, I gave in to it and starting working on it again.
Actually, I want to start another ambitious project, but I have too many outstanding ones at this time, so I need to complete what I have working before I start another one. The socks are a part of that “needs to be done” pile.
So, that’s where I am with the socks, or sock, for that matter. I did cast on the second one, too! I have a few rounds of the ribbing cuff done. Yay! I’m a little over halfway done!
