A whole new SSS

Those of you that know me, know that this would not be Second Sock Syndrome. I almost ALWAYS finish a pair of socks, unless there is a problem with the yarn or the pattern etc. I love wearing handknit socks too much to NOT finish.
-
So what's this new SSS?
Silly.
Sock.
Saga.
-
The saga started with a request from the Sporty One to knit her friend a pair of socks. So I cast on these:

They were turning out very cute, but they were too small. Doggone it. (Later they will be gifted to my niece. She will love the colors.)
-
So....on to the 2nd pair. I started to make these:
What was the problem with these? Absolutely nothing! The girls fell in love with the yarn and forbid me from giving them away. Strike 2!
-
3 strikes and you're out right? Well good thing I didn't strike out.
At last! A finished pair. Simple stockinette socks in Opal yarn. They have been gifted and she loves them. Yay.
-
So that's the end of my
Silly.
Sock.
Saga.
Now to finish those two other pairs.......
(It's easy Maple, really.)

That definitely brings new meaning to SSS! :) I can see why the girls didn't want to part with the second pair, the yarn is so pretty! I really like the Opal you used for the third pair too! Your sock needles have been busy!

Making TWO socks is not easy. ONE is easy.
