SSS

second
sock
syndrome......

I'm having the hardest time finishing the 2nd sock. Does this happen to you? I'm bound and determined to learn knitting on 2 circular needles. Is it hard? I really think it would be so much more fun, because the excitement is gone after I've seen the first one complete :(

The socks are knit out of Trekking XXL. (this colorway is no longer available.)
The bag is from Neiman Marcus. (free gift with purchase.) I don't shop there but my friend Jennifer does and she was sweet enough to pass it on to me.


Thanks Jenny!
I love it

This always happens to me. But I make ridiculous rules for myself like I am not allowed to start something else until I finish the first project.

I love your socks and bag! Why do they always discontinue great colorways? Why?

You are not allowed to have SSS....It does NOT run in our family! :)

Don't quit now you are almost there & the next time you see your sis you 2 can do a photo shoot of the 2 of you wearing the socks together, I think if you both wore roller skates that would be a nice touch!

Shelly, I think everyone gets S^3. I get it so bad that I can't knit socks because I know I won't do the second one.
In terms of circulars, they are definately the way to go!
p.s. thanks for your encouraging words!

Same feeling about trying to finish the 2nd sock. " 2 circulars are not difficult at all and that's such a cute bag :)
