What I did on my lunch break

Posted by Andi on January 5, 2008

Yesterday, during my lunch break, I left work and took the train down to one of my LYSs. Normally I wouldn’t go so far away during my lunch break, but I really didn’t feel like going after work.

My purchase? My first set of sock blockers. Why? Because I knew that last night I would finish my first ever sock!

My first sock

All I had to do last night was decrease at the toe and graft it shut. I haven’t washed it yet, so it’s not really blocking yet. Here is a picture that shows the colors better:

My first sock - close up

The yarn is by Fleece Artist, and I received it in a swap for one of my Ravelry groups.

I didn’t take long at all. And since I can’t wait to wear my socks, I cast on of the second one immediately after finishing the first. I don’t really understand second sock syndrome, can someone explain it to me? I mean, having just one sock is useless. Why would one knit a sock and then not knit the second one? What does one do with one sock? It makes no sense to me.

    Sock blockers rock! I’ve got the same make as you, they are great – good luck with the second sock!

    I think that second sock syndrome comes from knitters who are bored with the sock that they just finished and are excited for some other knitting project. Clearly, you are a product motivated knitter.
