One-Itis

I've had a wicked case of One-itis lately. I'm devoting the rest of the month to finishing up and pairing off all of the lonely singles I have kicking around here; one Toe Up sock, one Toe Down sock and a Sulbu mitten. When I envisioned this post in my head, I saw it as a puppet show:
[Top Down sock pops up over the back of the sofa]:
"♫Onnnnnneeee.... is the loneliest number that you'll ever do♫"

[Toe Up Sock pops up next to him and joins in...]

"♫Twwwwooooo can be bad as one...♫"

[Sulbo mitten joins the odd pair...]
"♫It's the loneliest number since the number one.♫"

(Don't get excited, it's just the back of the same Selbu. He's quite a dancer!)

And they all start rockin' together Three Dog Night style!!! There's stage fog and lasers!!! The crowd goes wild!!!!

Uh...Ahem.

But then I thought, 'No that's just weird and you probably shouldn't even admit that you seriously entertained the thought right up until the logistics of working all three 'puppets', the lights, fog machine, and camera all by yourself slowed you down.' No, best just to keep it to myself.....

Can't you just blame all of the missing socks on your dryer? :)

Those socks are going to make awesome pairs, and that mitten is fantastic the second time around. Totally worth ripping out and starting over!

Now don't you wish you'd knitted those items on a CSM? They'd never been lonely...... ;)

If you squint really, really hard, those 2 socks are a pair.
