Clementine's Baltic Socks

I am becoming anything but monogamous. I am becoming a procrastinator. (Only when it comes to knitting, that is) Recently I thought four projects was enough to drive me nuts, so I quickly finished the Chicago Scarf and then the Wedding Shawl and then the test slippers, leaving my one lone Tweed to finish. At that point, one would assume I'd actually finish it. But then I did have that other skein of lace weight yarn. So I cast on. Then for some reason, all the unfinished/abandoned socks started taunting me - what? You can't make socks?

So again, I got out some of this sock yarn, some size 1 dpn's and cast on. Of course it was wrong. I ripped. Cast on. Ripped. Cast on. Counted the blasted things again. Ripped. Cast on. And now here we are.
Here is the pattern I'm using. Looks promising, but we all know looks can be deceiving.

I'm completely unable to maintain project monogamy. I know I'd have a lot more FOs to show for myself, but I just can't help myself.

Sonya, what are you working on at the moment? I know you've got the mitens. Did you start the vest?

Gosh, this pattern is absolutely awesome! Thanks for sharing the link - I've already printed it out and will try my hands at it very soon!
I'm sure you'll be getting into the mysteries of the pattern in no time - at first it might be a bit tricky, but I know you can make it - and your socks are going to be real beauties!

Oh, Mistress of Lace, I know you'll conquer these socks. Think of those cold, blustery Chicago winds - these will be perfect to take along. As always, lookin' good!
