On Monday morning I cast on a pair of socks for my husband, last night I had this. That's a full cuff of stockinette sock. Unbelievable. I've also knit half the heel flap now and am feeling very accomplished. I must apologise for the picture quality, I took it with my phone camera late in the evening with only the artificial lighting of my living room.
The only knitting time I spent on this was a little on Monday morning and evening, some time on the bus yesterday afternoon then another hour or two of yesterday evening whist I watched the lucky future recipent play Fifa.
It looks like I'm getting faster. I knit socks for him for Christmas and they took a full month of these snippets of knitting time I get, I know it took a week to get to the instep decreases after starting the first sock. I think I could finish a pair in 2 weeks now if pushed, if it was a week off work I think I could even finish a pair in a week, certainly a pair for me and not Mr big feet anyway!!
I would like to be faster still, especially when knitting flat as whist my knit stitches do whizz along pretty well now my purling is still on the slow side. I am happy though, I am getting faster and faster. Hurrah! More socks for me knit more quickly.
