Well, I'm finished with my paraphernalia socks. This pattern wasn't difficult at all, and I really like the cable, but I had endless trouble with the second sock. I have a bad habit of making minor changes in sock patterns and then forgetting exactly what I've done by the time I'm knitting the second sock. I honestly can't count how many times, I unraveled and re-knit the heal of the second sock. You'd think I'd learn, but I'll probably do it again, but maybe next time, I'll at least write down my changes.
I'll just blame the heat. It's been over 100 degrees for the last week, and it's just zapping my energy. We'll head up to my parents' house in Northern California in less than two weeks, and we won't mind if it's foggy and cold the entire time. I really would be happy to bundle up and sit by the beach knitting something warm.
