I’ve never had any problem with Second Sock Syndrome – but I seem to be suffering from single mitt syndrome badly. I finished the first of these mitts last week, and have not picked them up since. I feel all “meh” about them, probably because it is about 95% humidity and 30° (that’s 85° for you fahrenheit types). Here it is, in its unblocked glory:
The past couple of weeks have been crazy – I’ve had a family cancer scare (negative thankfully), a shipment of yarn arrive (silk, silk, and more silk), Sock Summit to prepare for, the server hosting the shop coming under attack, orders to send, and a big complicated argument with my daughters’ school that has necessitated many long, rather fraught meetings.
So, I’ve been ignoring the second mitt. It is not the yarn, it feels lovely, but 100% merino in this weather? Just not appealing. They won’t get worn until the trip to Australia in July in any event. All details here (Ravelry link). I dyed the Frankston with Siow Chin and Mindy when we had a dyeing party here.
In other news, I’ve been really hating the Hong Kong traffic, and had been complaining to my husband that the air conditioning in the car did not seem to be working properly. At lunchtime today, just as I was feeling really hot, bothered and frustrated, I realised that the seat heater was on, and had been set to maximum! Now, I am off to the yarn storage locker, and the supermarket, hopefully without the feeling that my rear end is on fire.
