I know that feeling..lol..
Iam addicted to socks, its become a "what do Laura's socks look like today". People check out the ones on my feet and on my needles on a regular basis.
It was funny to see the reaction of non-knitters (muggles) when I was using self striping, they actually thought I stopped and started just perfectly each time. I never corrected them..lol
Leaves'm guessing all the time.
