It is pretty well known throughout the yarn community that there is a very real struggle: finishing the second sock. I haven’t ventured into sock-making yet, but the same syndrome can be applied to gloves.
These fingerless gloves that I finished last week, for instance.
I really really wanted these things to be done so I can stay warm during lectures and at work and while drinking tea and while knitting and…everywhere else.
So to fight the urge to drop the second one with disgust and hate, I have a very simple medicine for Second Sock Syndrome.
Wear the first one while making the second one.
Simple solution or what?
While knitting the second, you will be blissfully awaiting the day that you can show the pair off to the world and receive compliments and “ohh you make me a pair”’s and “you actually make those!”’s
Yes, it will be a little harder to give up when you have one warm hand and one very cold hand.
How do you get over the infamous Second Sock Syndrome?
