The weekend was stressful, and as I knit, I found myself wondering what my therapist and many other knitters would think if they knew that with each stitch I focused not on peace, but on a fast and violent end to the sources of stress around me (and you know who you are)....Hmmm. Anyway, the thoughts were brief, and the mature adult in me (wherever she is) stepped up and brought me back to my senses.
I picked the sock up many times over the weekend, but it's knitting up much slower than the first one. I wonder if external stress is one of the factors that contribute to one-sock-syndrome? I've managed to avoid one-sock-syndrome by forcing myself to finish a pair before I start anything else. So far it's working ok. These are only the second pair of socks I've been able to part with. The first pair went to my husband as well. I made these top down using Cambio Zitron (606) and Phildar Preface.
He's an easy give cause they're never far from sight, and if I really want to, I can wear them when he's not looking ;)
