Anna's got another contest and I have another pair of socks on the needles....I see a trend

What’s your knitting scandal? Post yours at Anna’s blog. She’s running another contest ending this Saturday 12/8 so take a deep breath and share those knitting secrets you’ve been trying to hide from your knitting peers.

And of course I chose to cast on another pair of socks. This time the Anniversary Socks from Interweave’s 25 Favorite Socks. Its time to spice up my sock knitting with more challenging patterns! Its already harder than the last two. I had to ripe out the 4th rnd a couple times before I got it right. But I’m up for the challenge. I can do this!
I thought I'd share this:
My Conversation With my Best Guy Friend (BGF) About My Sock Knitting Obsession:

Me: yup I'm obsessed with socks
BGF: why?
Me: why am I obsessed? well they're small so I can work on them anywhere
I can finish them relatively quickly so I get almost instant gratification and
there are so many patterns! So I can try all different techniques but on a
smaller scale so if I fuck up and have to rip back I don’t want to cry like
I would if I was making a sweater
BGF: it's like knitting masturbation
Me: yah I guess it is like knitting masturbation
Only a man would make that comparison.

OK, this would never occur to me. Not by any stretch of the imagination.
