I'm fully over the delusion that I can knit a pair of socks in a week. Even though it is the only knitting I've been doing for the past few weeks, I've still not finished Golf Pro's socks.
I won't even pretend that I could have finished them had they been for me.... it's gone on far too long for that, and his feet aren't THAT much bigger than mine.
However, I have turned the heel,
finished all gusset shaping, and am now merrily working my way up the calf. They will end when I don't have enough yarn for two more rounds. (Okay, there will be ribbing, but still, I'm basically going until I run out of yarn).
I'm still rather amazed at how long they're taking. Especially now, when the only fiddly bits are one measly cable per sock. Perhaps this is evidence that I knit faster on dpns? (I'm using the two socks on two circs method -- not my usual approach).
I beleive they'll be called Ball in Chain.
