A fling of sorts, or In defense of simple patterns

After ripping out the second sock for the February sock of the month 6 times, well, I just could not face the yarn anymore. So, instead, I cheated on the project. I cheated with a skein of Noro, and a lovely pattern called Zoe. It's simple, its pretty, and its the perfect fling after a failed project.

  I have never been a monogamous knitter. Its just not in my nature. I like having different things on the needles. And well, sometimes I have a case of 'startitis' because I get frustrated. Sweater not going well? Cast on a hat. Hat suck? Socks. Harry Potter scarf? Lace hat. These projects all serve to keep me entertained, happy, and give me a break from projects that drive me loony.

This is why I am not going to try to continue the sock of the month thing, or, at least, not  have such a strict deadline.
