I'm in the midst of Six Sock September. In theory, I'm knitting six pair of socks. Pair #1: done Pair #2: about 75% done Pair #3: about 75% done Pair #4: about 30% done Pairs 5 and 6 have patterns and yarn selected and are in their own project bags. I've got a terrible case of Second Sock Syndrome. I started switching off between Pair 2 and Pair 3. The foot portion of both are so boring that I had to start Pair #4. It's ridiculous. I do a pattern repeat on #2. As reward, I get to stop and do an inch on #3. To reward myself for doing that, I get to do 15 rows of the pattern on #4. I know it's a bit crazy, but it is the only way I'll get through them all.
One good thing came out of this. Pair #4 is knit with my first Madelinetosh sock yarn. I really like this stuff. It's got a great texture and the blue color makes me happy. I've happened upon so many good sock yarns this year, maybe I'll do a top ten list at the end of the year.
