Yes, start the other. Do not succumb to SSS!
Hmmm.....what do people do with the one sock when they do succumb.

The KH Forum is an awesome place to find knit/crochet friends. We all love encouraging each other, and showing off our projects. And we can get immediate help when we have problems with our stitching!

I really want to knit socks but I do not know how to use more than two kneedles.

Knitting is such a stress-reliever for me. When I have a rough week at work, I love my weekends so I can just relax and knit and unwind.

I am going to FINISH the 2012 Bernat Mystery Blanket that I started last year. I was so busy moderating their forum, that I hardly had time to stitch.
