Hand Knit Socks: Getting to know Cookie A (again)
The last time I knit a pair of socks by Cookie A it was her most famous pattern called Monkey. Almost 17,000 pairs of them have been logged in on Ravelry. Not bad for a little sock pattern.
I decided to branch out and try her pattern called Wanida, a significantly less popular pattern with only around 1,000 projects noted on Ravelry.
Not sure why one pattern becomes more popular than the next. Maybe it's the photos. Maybe it's just viral. Either way, I am enjoying knitting Wanida and hope to cast on the 2nd sock soon.
"Second Sock Syndrome," AKA "SSS" or basically a lack of interest in knitting the 2nd sock (no more mystery, once the first sock is complete) is my current state of being.
What does one do when overcome by this disorder?
My "helpful" DH has recommended one could have one's second foot surgically removed. An interesting (sick?) notion. I was sure I could come up with a better alternative to that. How about....
I may have a photo for you of my newest hand sewn creation soon. Stay tuned. So far, I'm navigating uncharted waters and having a serious blast.
