I have sucessfully averted second sock syndrome! As soon as the first cashmere sock was finished, I cast on for the second. While I was at my mom and dad's house in Ventura over the weekend, I got to the heel of the second sock. Yesterday, I turned the (short-row) heel and started on the leg. I should have these finished in the next couple of days.
Meanwhile, I started on another project -- a neighbor of mine is due to have a baby boy at the beginning of September, so I'm knitting a grey chenielle blanket similar to this one. I've also got the new sewing machine sitting here, staring at me, imploring me to use it -- but I'm going to hold off until I get a seweing desk and get my gear organized. My hands do get a little itchy (a sure sign of startitis) every time I get within a few feet of my fabrics, though.
