how does a pair of socks turn into two pairs and mittens?

Yes, these are supposed to be a pair of socks. What is that you say? They don't match, but it was the same colorway and everything . . . so, how does a pair of socks become two pairs of socks?

So I left the sock that I was working on for Zachariah at home. No big deal except that I was going to be gone for four days. Not to despair, I had brought the other skein and needles and started on the second sock. They don't match. So, he is going to end up with two socks.

But wait, there's more . . . I worked the election as a poll worker and took my "new sock" with me and got to where I needed to do the heel. Not bad. I will take it with me to my knit group gathering on Wednesday. Gee, do I want to be turning the heel and talking at the same time? Noooooo.

But wait, there's more . . . So I took Jelly Beans in Magic Stripes and am going to make Lindsey either mittens or gauntlets.

So, there you have it. That is how one pair of socks turns into two and a pair of gauntlets, or maybe mittens . . .
