I think it is interesting that when I am knitting something for someone else, be it a gift or a commission, I always put in more time and take more care than when I am knitting something for myself.

Pointelle, designed by Cookie A.

The pattern is Pointelle, from Cookie A.’s book [amazon_link id=”0984572600″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Knit.Sock.Love[/amazon_link] (Ravelry link to pattern). The yarn is Yarn Hollow’s Summer Love (aka Panda Cotton).

The socks are mirrored, so each foot is different. I like knitting socks like this because it is much less boring.

Now, if only I could harness the energy I put into other people’s projects for one of my own. Does anyone else have this problem?

    Nice! I love that they are mirrored. And yes, I have similar problems. Other than fobs, I do not own a single piece of my own stitching.
