Finally these socks are done! They've been hanging around for far too long. No more! Come tomorrow they'll be on my feet :)

it only took just over half a ball for the entire pair, so another pair of these will be knitted in the future.

Onto Christmas knitting!

My current knitting

So as I changed the knitting rota, I've been chugging away on these socks. I finished the cuff on Wednesday night at SnB and cast on the second one. I managed to get the foot and the heel finished last night, with a bit of the leg too.

But, as today is Sunday I thought I'd start something else for the coming week (as per the on a week, off a week scheme) so I settled on a cardigan for a 2 year old. The one I'm doing is the one on the top left but without the stripes. (see how I tried to cover everything else on the page, lol) I'm hoping it won't take too long, but come Sunday its back to the sock!

Or maybe not

So I was totally convinced that the split week thing was working until I realised it had taken for a fortnight to knit one single, solitary sock. Add into the mix that one christmas gift took me 3 full weekends makes me slightly rethink the plan.

New plan - one week each, lol. The socks getting its week so see how much of the thing I can knit and next week (except Wednesday) the new Christmas project will get my full attention (doesn't help that scouts restart on Monday so I lose a nights knitting)

So there we have it, the new plan and hopefully this one works out. Failing that, its a lot of monogamous knitting in my future!
