I just knit the crap out of this sock

Many non-knitter have asked me how long it takes me to knit something (a knitter knows this is a silly question - every project is different, and it's not about the time.) It's hard to give an answer, not just because of the fact that projects vary, but because knitting is so often done in little spurts of time. A row or two here, a pattern repeat there - some projects seem to drag and others just fly by. It's too hard to quantify.

However, I can now tell them, that when I stick to it, I can knit a sock in a day.

It was not my intention when I got up this morning, but the cold is still kicking my butt, so I didn't have motivation to do much else but knit. It's hard to tell from that picture, as the foot is curling back a bit, but that second sock is just three inches from the toe.

I'm going to go pop a cake in the oven, and get back to it - Dave and I have a few episodes of the Borgias left to watch, so I'll be grafting the toe before bed!

That is quick! I got a heel turn done yesterday and am over halfway through the gusset now. Spent about 10 minutes working out which toe I wanted to try out on this sock which is a plain one. I'm getting bored with the standard one and am sure I can get a better fit on other methods.

I got half a foot knit the other morning while stuck sitting in the courthouse. (Jury duty. Argh.)
Getting uninterrupted time seems to be the key. Not easy, that.
Maybe I need to catch a cold...
(Hope you're feeling better!)
