Yeah, that’s right. SIPs – Socks In Progress! Makes sense, no?

You read the first part of my WIP story here. Now you can read about that special category which becomes an obsession with most knitters – Socks!

The socks:

  • Anastasia – Part of our Second Sock Syndrome Swap from October LAST YEAR! How hard could this be? I started out with one sock ready and only needed to knit the second sock. Yet it still waits.
  • Mom’s First Socks – For one reason or another, I paused before the heel of the second (third) sock. Time to get a move on! (Read about it.)
  • Jitterbug plain – Okay, so Jitterbug could never be plain, but these were simple, short socks with a contrasting cast-off frill. One done, the other… ?
  • Regia Canadian Color socks – Took on NH vacation as a simple sock to work on, yet never made it too far in (cuff + leg of one). Too nice to let lay, eh?
  • Jitterbug Life Savor/State Fair socks – This one is embarrassing. And no fault lies with the Jitterbug yarn, which is nice and sproingy and the colors are shocking wonderful. (What can I say, I loves me some bright colors.) Here

    Oooh, the exciting saga continues!!! You remember all the trouble I got in last year with all my single socks. I totally believe in one sock at a time.

    WOW! That is a list! I have two socks going right now and it is a little difficult, I can’t imagine 5! Finish your Mom’s socks first… I say that only because I wanna see them! 😉
    Good luck!

    I like the SIPs.

    I only have a pair of socks going on the Magic Loop right now. Of course, I have a gajillion* balls of sock yarn waiting patiently to be knitted, but I have to agree – one pair of socks at a time is best.

    *Not to be confused with your bajillion-gajillion balls of sock yarn. I’ve seen that sock yarn stash of yours.

    Those socks are so pretty. Especially the canadian colors. I like that jitterbug yarn and love how those colors are turning out.
