The "Single Sock Liberation Movement" on Flickr makes me laugh. I laugh because it makes all too much sense to me.

Like some of you, I have a hard time staying motivated to knit a pair of socks-- you know, one right after the other. I'm prone to getting really excited about the idea of the project. A particular yarn, colorway, and stitch pattern will cause bizarre elation and joy. Some of you might call this the 'lust' stage of knitting.

Knitters like to categorize themselves as process or project people. Perhaps I'm a planner.

Strangely, I've finished another pair of socks. #18

For some reason, Claudia's yarn *has really pulled me in. (Perhaps it's the gorgeous dye work and v. tightly spun superwash merino.) I've finished two pairs within two months. This has got to be some kind of personal record!

*Claudia's Wollmeise now subtracts VAT for US orders. Skeins can be purchased at 12 Euro, so if you order five at once the yarn plus shipping is only $21.40/skein.
