Love the socks--particularly the purple pair! I just recently started to knit again not that I was much good the first time and I don't think that things have improved with age. I broke my arm back in May and I thought that knitting might give me some good therapy for it now that I'm no longer doing PT. A group of women that I have been interacting with for many years seem to be knitting socks. One is a recent convert and the others are knitters from way back and are very encouraging. I'm not sure that I will be able to handle socks though. I have a low frustration threshold and I'm afraid that if I did manage to get one sock knit, I would have to make friends with an amputee because the other sock would never make it.

Have you considered doing the magic loop method where you can knit two socks at once? I prefer doing one sock at a time, but those who have 2nd sock fatigue swear by the two-at-a-time method.
