For some reason, I can only do 1 of anything.  I say - "I'll do this one, then one of another then go back and do the match for the first" - but I end up moving onto something else.  Anyone else like this?  I really need to finish these up because these would make some nice gifts, I think.  =)  Well, except for the socks, which are for my little guy.

Someone on craftster posted a pattern for these.  Love 'em.  Done in Caron Simply Soft Shadows.

Done in SWTC Karaoke Mermaid Mix

Done in SWTC Karaoke Intensity

Done in Moda Dea Sassy Stripes (I think the color is Lucky, or Crayon)

You could make every day mismatched day!
They're lovely, especially the second one. I love those colors. Do you have the link to that specific pattern?

Hey, nice work! Here in Aus we have Odd Socks Day for charity.
Maybe you could start a new Odd Wristies Day  Grin

That sock looks so neat. I used to have a Christmas pair with similar colors.

Really beautiful -- I like the first red glove!

I have the same problem with finishing the second of something.  My solution is to work them both at the same time.  If they are socks, I do the toe of the first one, then switch and do the toe of the other, then I go back and do the foot of the first one, then the foot of the other, and so on -- that way, when I finish the first one, there's just one little bit of the second one left!

Oh, the wristwarmers are beautiful!  I especially like the second one - the cables are stunning.  I think I'd wear that around even if I had only one.  Smiley

I am so there.  So much so, that sometimes, my gauge changes by the time I get around to the second one.  My friend's son is getting mismatched mittens as a result of my procrastination.

Thanks, Katxena, for the good idea.  Has anybody seen the article in Knitty about knitting two socks at once?  It looks like double knitting, and one sock lies inside the other one.  I'm terrified to try, I'd never keep track.  But a better knitter than myself might get something from the technique.

Thanks guys!  IIRC, The 2nd wristwarmer was from a book called - Hats, a Knitter's Dozen.  There's a pattern in there called Snowbound Aran that includes a hat, wristwarmers and cowl.
