Things I don't normally do

I'm working on two things at once, and it's doing my head in. Because I had this week off, and I knew I was going to have some time at home by myself I started Elise's blanket. Here' it is, all ready to go:

I had to wind off the yarn, it wasn't going to be knitable from those big balls.

I decided to keep the socks for knitting when I'm out. Much more portable and practical. But it's driving me crazy. The socks don't seem to make any progress, I'm obsessed with how the blanket is growing, and I feel generally unsatisfied with this arrangement. I'm going to take the socks to knit night on Monday, finish them and then focus on the blanket. I'd like to say lesson learned, but this blanket is going to get so big, so heavy, so fast, that I might end up knitting another pair of socks alongside it, and I'll be making the exact same complaint then too, I'm sure. Practicality versus emotion, and maybe I should let emotion win next time.
