The Thorn in My Side

I’m sure every knitter has a project that was started and that just cannot be finished…a thorn in his/her side, if you will.  Mine is the Vine Socks I started for DD about a year ago.  The pattern is really pretty on them, however it took me FOREVER to finish the first one and now I have the dreaded Second Sock Syndrome.  I think part of it is that I started on them before DD was born thinking that, boy or girl, my baby would have a pair of really cute socks I could put on him/her in the first few months of life.  That changed once I brought home my little peanut who only weighed 7# 1oz at birth.  Her feet were so small I figured it would be 6 months before she’d be able to wear them…..her feet are STILL to small to wear them!  I realize my child is small, but the pattern says they are for "infants."  What mongoloid baby can wear these things?!?!  Oh well!
