I don't ever remember being so happy to finish a pair of socks. I'm not sure why this pair was particularly painful. Well, yes, they were literally painful when I started needing to do 9 - 12 fingersticks a day to test my blood sugars. But for the last week or so, the fingers seem to have adjusted. The socks just seemed to drag on forever. It's a great pattern, but I started craving some simple, self-striping sock knitting. (Yes, that's what my next pair will be.)
All in all, they were worth every LONG moment they took - and I know mom will love them. And if anyone is worth socks that seem to take forever, it's my mom!
