That I would ever have the attention span to knit these socks. I think that the enchantment of a growing pattern, coupled with the excuse to buy a fun black knee-length skirt, and using either the called-for Regia Silk or Knitpicks Gloss yarn, would make it a Finished Object before too long. And the wonderful thing about sock knitting is that even for tall knee socks, using super-luxe yarn, the price is $35 for the Regia or $16 for the Gloss. Think about the monetary investment in sweaters, and the comparison with socks (and they have about the same number of stitches) and you will see why people like to knit socks.
