So a while ago I knit these socks for Tim. He wore them once and loved them. I washed them and then accidentally one ended up in the dryer. And it shrunk. So I had to knit him another one (meaning I had to find another ball of the yarn, which is no longer made) and then knit it again.
Here is the interesting thing: I can knit a basic sock over and over again, but knitting a THIRD of the same sock is not fun.
