Right now I have two pair on needles. Both are self-designed, if by "designed" you mean "casting on a bunch of stitches and making it up as you go along." I am NOT a fabulous knitter but it turned out that sock-knitting is really easy to figure out! And I have a really hard time keeping track of anything much more complex than a knit 3, purl 1 rib stitch pattern, so I just basically make the same sock over & over again. I'll get venturesome and try a single lace leaf pattern in the middle of the sides of a pair of socks - eventually. For now my two main reasons to knit are to replace my rapidly-disintegrating store-bought-sock wardrobe with all me-made socks, and to keep my hands busy. The old socks are falling apart much faster than I can knit new ones, is the problem. So, I need to trundle on.

I usually have plenty of help when I knit:
You can see O'Keefe is applying all her kitty intelligence to supervising me. Here she's just about to mention that I dropped that last stitch...
