Sock obsession and new sew-along project!

I've only really had time to knit socks lately, but I'm trying not to get second sock syndrome.

Yarn - Regia Jubilee in India, size 1 needles, 60 stitches cast on

Unki always shows up for the sock photo shoots! These might be my favorite socks yet. I really like the yarn, it feels sturdy and I think they'll last a long time. I've also gotten better at fit as well.

Of course I immediately cast on for a new pair.

This is Lana Grossa Mega Boots Stretch yarn. Another nice yarn, the sock is nice and squishy. But I'm having trouble completing the second sock. Tomorrow I'll show why!

Oh, and if you are interested in the next Sew? I Knit! project, it will be sewing a bag, which I have some experience in. Sign ups started today and will continue until Friday. Join us!

I really like the colors of the Regia yarn. Perfect for Project Spectrum! :) I have an unfinished pair of Jaywalkers (I do them 2 at a time on 2 sets of DPNs), both are nearly up to the toe. And that's where they've been for the past month! Your lovely socks have given me some more motivation to get them done.

I'm curious to see why you're having trouble completing the second sock, is it cat-related?
