What next?

Clearly those horrible Monster Socks are going to be completed (one way or another) today. So, what next? Should I continue in the spirit of Socktoberfest and do more socks? I can’t do any more plain socks. I just can’t. Or I could continue in completion mode. Or do something else entirely…

Some choices:

  • a new cast on sock
    • plain – more Magic Loop practice
    • lace – for the fix
    • toe-up – for the spirit of Socktoberfest – crack the skill
  • Pick up a WIP sock
    • #1 Husband – oh, so overdue
    • Mingus – pretty, pretty socks for me
    • Thorfinn – my own invention, intended for boat journeys – so not pressing in any way
    • Warning! – the mixed recipe socks with Second Sock Syndrome
  • Pick up another WIP
    • Down Among the Dunes – Morning Surf wrap is kind of in active progress
    • Rainbow Swallowtail – want that finished!
    • the other Swallowtail – not a priority
    • the BSJ – due in mid-December
    • or any one of many partially started projects
  • Start something new
    • Bayret
    • fingerless gloves for Mr L

What’s it to be?

I am tempted to scale the personal mountain and try the toe-up sock yet again. But I really want to do something soft and wispy and lacy. I know that what I should do is to clear the sock WIP pile in what remains of October. But that’s a bit dull. I will probably end up doing a deal with myself and line up two projects: one worthy and sensible and another for light relief, and knit them concurrently.

    You know what challenge I would suggest, don’t you?! 🙂

    There is challenge, and there is lunacy. I’m up for one but not for t’other. Not until I get my foot sawn off, that is. I’ll do the two socks at a time thing when I have my leg up in the air for 10 weeks.
