The battle may be lost, but the war is not over

I tried to knit myself some socks. I really tried. All I can offer as evidence is this slightly blurry photo of stockinette.

2008: The End

Have you seen my sock mojo?

I mostly made my holiday knitting deadline. Except for two pairs of socks. I just couldn’t get motivated to work on them. I started one, and the cuff was way too bag, and I felt the weight of the dreaded sock curse creeping upon me.
