No SSS Here

Broadripple #2. Finished. Done. Fits. Happy. So clearly we have no Second Sock Syndrome goin' on at Chez Insanity. No, instead we have NSS. New Sock Syndrome. I can't for the life of me figure out what I want to do next. I thought I liked the Cat's Paw in the Claudia Handpainted. I was wrong. I was knitting it on US 2.5 and it was far too loose. This of course is after I tried the Sundara yarn in 3 patterns (Waterfall, Bluebell and Chain Link) and the Sockotta in the Cat's Paw. Oh, I also tried doing the Sundara in the Cloverleaf pattern but I couldn't figure out how to read the chart. It's not like I have a shortage of yarns to choose from. Or patterns for that matter. But I just can't seem to settle down and get started on a new sock. Tragic.

It's midnight and it's 73 degrees. Is it just me or is there something horribly wrong with that? How am I supposed to sleep? But apparently I'm the only one having that problem.

    Why not try Jaywalkers in the Regia Stretch Crazy Colors you scored in June? I am doing a pair in Regia Stretch Crazy Colors (116) and I love it.

    trek,

    i shall bow to your superior sock knowledge and give the jaywalkers pattern a go. especially since it has no purls in it. i knew i could count on you. :)
