I think I’ll even be done with them in January. After all, I did the heel last night, and got halfway down the foot today. Another day with them and I think I can be done.
I am using exactly the same needles for sock 2, but clearly my gauge is tighter. You can see by the stripes on the second sock as compared to the stripes (And often lack thereof) on the first.
But, these days, I don’t get too concerned about such things. Just knit the sock, wear the sock, and life is good.
