The "I hate Heels' thing goes into wearing them too. I have a few ratty old pairs of plain tube socks and those are the ones I grab to put on if the are in the sock drawer. The new pair I finished last week hasn't made it to the sock drawer yet. It has been worn washed and dug out from the laundry basket to wear!
I suspect this reveals something about me right now, about my mood and the way I feel. It goes right along with my not feeling settled in my knitting and my inability to work on an existing knitted project without starting a dozen more. I am grumpy about everything. I sleep but I am tired. I am not sick, but I do not feel well at all.
I suspect that this is a pandemic interlude. I do not have the virus, but staying at home all the time, the lack of freedom to choose to stay i or go, may be getting to me. I hope not because there are a few more months of this for sure. There will likely be a lessening of the restrictions as summer comes but that is a long time away.
I have two more pairs on the go and both of them are on the first sock of the pair, so both of those are going to be plain, heelless socks. I am not starting any socks till those are complete, but then, I think I will aim for plain and simple. I have been thinking about knitting from the Operation Sock Drawer book, but I think I am going to leave that to the side and just knit plain socks in brillisnt yarn.
Socks have cured me before. I am going to put my trust in them to cure me now.
