I found the cure!

Y'all brace yourselves for crazy news: I KNIT THIS WEEKEND.

It's true!  How did this come about, just after my self-confessed funk?  Because of the yarn store.

I went in to get a present for my aunt for Mother's Day (she's in town), and left feeling like I should be knitting something.  I'm not quite sure HOW it worked, just that it did.  I finished turning both my sock heels and am working on the gussets.  This was not without a lot of frustration (I couldn't get it to work right, but stopped caring because they look fine), and at one point I had to take the socks off the circular and put them onto DPNs and back onto the circular to rearrange them to the right starting position.  I'll probably have to rearrange them again.

I had such high hopes for this 2-at-a-time sock thing, and the heel is totally bumming me out.  I was moving along pretty well up until then.  I had only taken me 20 days to do both my sock legs and to start the heel originally, which is record time for me.  I'd almost want to try again, except I really have to figure this heel business out.  I'd just to it on DPNs and put it back on the circular after the heel was done, except my DPNs are all wood, and my gauge changes completely.  Grr argh!
