I Need A Sock Intervention

... of the other kind. I need y'all to come upon me, as a swarm of sock knitters, sit me down in the backyard, in the garden and force me to make a sock. I've started a sock a couple of times. I don't know why it's been less than appealing for me. Perhaps I KNOW I'll have the worst case of second sock syndrome, ever- and it'll hit me immediately.

Or maybe it's just that I personally almost never wear socks, and often my knitted gifts aren't that appreciated, so who would I knit the dang things for?

Or maybe it's those teeny, tiny, itsy-bitsy needles. Hmmm.
I don't know. But I know I have to knit a pair at some point. To make an informed decision. And I know Soapy will help me... if only we could get ourselves in to the hospital at the same time. We keep missing each other by a day or three...

Please, come. Force me to knit socks. I've got a nice garden, a stocked bar and a strong desire to create socks.

Sock knitting is addictive, once you make your first one! =) But yeah, I definitely suffer from Second Sock Syndrome. I need to learn that "knit two at once" thing.

You get used to the itsy bitsy needles, though I tend to hold them too tightly and my fingers hurt when I'm done!

I love sock knitting. It makes me appreciate knitting a sweater much more. And for some reason, my 2nd socks go much much quicker (and I knit one at a time). I've knit 6 pairs of socks for other people and they all say they love them. :)

You could make worsted weight socks, OR if you don't mind the teeny needles, make a pair of baby socks. Either way you'll learn the basic formula for socks in less time.
