Knitting ADD.... Startitis

Whatever you call it... I have it BAD!! I have started another sock. It's the sock for sockmaniacs ( yes another Yahoo KAL) Fishermen's Socks. It is a lovely pattern (no mindless knitting here) of cables and gansey knitting. I'm using Lorna's Laces Sock in natural on size 1 dpn's. This pattern is kind of messing with my head, because I happen to like symmetry in my socks and the front(zig-zaggy) and back(braided cables) are totally different. Don't get me wrong, I like the pattern and I'm going to finish this pair of socks ( my daughter says I have issues I really need to deal with...just because I want the stripes to match with self-striping yarn and the fronts and backs to match with patterns) it won't make the twitching any worse, really. So if you see a woman wondering the streets with mismatched socks talking to herself... it's me, but I'm alright, I just have issues. And I'm trying to resolve them.
P.S. sorry for the poor quaility of the pictures, it's hard to take a good one of white (ivory) yarn and see the patterns well.

I love the sock Karen. I went through a lot of my yarn today trying to find just the right one for this sock.... I may have to go yarn shopping...oh no. I wish I had done this when everyone was flashing their stash, I have a little more than I thought.

Yeah...I think I would rather have the fronts and backs matching too. It would just make it more...even I guess.

Good job on the sock!
