Actually, yes it is. I added a picture, otherwise I'm shamelessly re-using Wednesday's WIP post for Fiber Arts Friday ....
My sock mania continues!
Button-up Socks from "Think Outside the Sox." Counting the anklets, this is my fourth pair in a row.
Do you all suffer SSS, or Sock Fatigue? I did. I've found that if I knit one sock to a stopping point, such as turning the heel, then stop and cast on the second sock, I enjoy it much more. If it's a highly patterned sock such as this one or the butterfly socks, it helps me remember the pattern if I switch back and forth. With the butterfly socks (last post) I knitted the entire foot on one, then switched to the second one and knitted the foot on that one. That way, that part of the pattern stayed fresh in my mind and I didn't have to re-learn it.
With this one, I knit the leg of one sock, then stopped and cast on the second one. If I don't have enough knitting needles in the correct size, I put the resting sock on stitch holders. This way really helps me to enjoy the whole knitting experience, and I don't feel the SSS so badly!
And yes, I can knit two-at-a-time, but I don't enjoy that so much. It takes too much time for me to keep the yarn balls straight.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday! I leave you with a photo of some bounty from my garden:
