Afflicted

IMG_3355IMG_3347 The term for it is “second sock syndrome”–the paralyzing condition that strikes you as you confront the fact that you will need to knit another item identical to the one that you have just finished.  If adequate containment measures are not taken, this condition can spread to other small tubular items such as sleeves, pant legs and leg warmers. It was awkward working the dpns the first time around, and now you have to do it again. Second sock syndrome leaves in its wake amputated projects longing for their phantom twins, taunting you with their pathetic singularity.

This is probably why I will not be joining in on the sock addiction, the mitten club or the long-sleeved sweater collective any time soon.

Good thing we live in Texas.
