Socks have been my go to project all through the job hunt and first month of the new job. But I finally completed a baby afghan that has been on the needles since June. I have a repair project and a shawl that have been in process longer but at least one major project is done.
It seems like I have only the patience for socks these days. Probably as they are easily knit while riding in the car even in the pre dawn hours. I started a new job in a new industry for me so by the time I can knit at night my brain just wants simple. So I have listened. Benefit for me is two pair of socks and one pair for Christmas gifting.
