Paul Atwell sock #1 is done, which means I'm a quarter of the way through my Christmas knitting.
I'm now going to make what to many would be a startling announcement: I like doing the second sock better than the first. Yes, that means I don't have second sock syndrome. The second sock always seems to go faster, because there's no uncertainty. You don't have to keep pausing and measuring on the portions that are supposed to go to a certain length - you can just count rows or pattern repeats on the first sock. What might have felt like it took forever on the first go flies by when you know how long it'll take until the end. So there you have it. I may be a freak, but I like second socks!
