Ok, yes, knitting a sock with a pattern instead of stockinette keeps the interest. Maybe I'm just picking up more confidence with each sock, but this was a quick knit. Maybe 6 sts/inch vs 7 sts /inch makes that much difference. I love this pair, well 1/2 pair. . .
But call me fickle. I'm already planning what yarn to use next.
