With everything that has been going on I didn't have the brain power to knit complicated projects.
Plain vanilla socks to the rescue.
I've always knit a sock per ball because I wanted to start the second
sock with the same color repeat and that seems simpler from a new ball.
Also, I didn't want to join my yarn. Sure, I always had two leftover
balls at the end that I
put into my sock yarn scraps and then forgot.
This time I was too tired to get the new ball when the first sock was finished so I started the second sock with what I had. I even matched the color repeat.
What this means is that each of my leftover bits of sock yarn is actually a whole new set of socks. It's quite the shocking realization.
