And then there were three...

Once there was a lonely sock. It was created and left to its own devices for a very long time. Meanwhile, the knitter managed to knit a pair of Jaywalkers, a SOTSii, a baby blanket, and a Mystic Light shawl...oh yeah, and her Sock Wars socks.

The sock was very sad.

The knitter tried and tried to create a second sock worthy of the first one, with all those beautfiul stripes. One time, two times, three times she started and on the fourth try, threw caution to the wind and ended up with this.

But neither the knitter nor the first sock were happy with the mate and so the knitter tried one last time. She knit as fast as she could, for hours and hours and suddenly...


That first second sock was so sad! Here was a THIRD sock worthy of being called a second sock! Destined now to become a set of baby booties - or maybe some ankle socks - the first second sock went off to a corner to pout...


And the first and third socks lived happily ever after...

THE END

Was it hard to make the socks? I was thining about making a pair but it looks intimidating. Are you going to make a friend for the sockless pair?
