socks half done

I've finished the first sock that I have been working on for a week or so now.  Its a test knit winter wheat (ravelry link) and I'm quite pleased with it.  It fits well and the pattern is quite interesting - uses a different heel that I havent done before, you dont need to pickup any stitches which is quite nice.  Test knits are great as they keep you focused and keeping moving.  On the down side, the test only requires you to knit ONE sock so I've quickly cast on the second one in the hope that I will avoid the dreaded "second sock syndrome" (i.e. one sock is knitted and waits forlornly for its partner to be knitted)

Yes, I always get the second one on to the needles quickly now. In 2009, a week after DD married, I knitted a sock. I didn't knit its partner for five months -- same yarn, same needles, same pattern, same knitter, different size, different level of stress! I learnt my lesson!
