Hedera Socks

I have been knitting the Hedera socks from the book "knit. sock. love." They are the first socks in the book. I started them about two weeks ago and it has been slow going. The pattern is easy and once you get the repeats down it is actually really easy. I don't know why I have so much trouble following the repeats. I have to actually stop and check each row when I finish to make sure I put in the right amount of yarn overs. I have finished one sock and am now about a third of the way through the second, but I keep putting it down and going to other projects. The yarn is really pretty and easy to work with, so it isn't the yarn. 

I am using Pagewood Farm Denali in the colorway of Grasshopper, which is a really close match to the color of the sample in the book. I am knitting with #1 dpn needles. 
Well I guess I'll just keep plugging away until I am finished.
