Not So Quick Socks . . .

Way back in February, I had been a slacker.  (Not to say I haven't been a slacker before, or even after, February . . . but for today let's let the rest of my slackerness slide.)  The end of the month was quickly drawing to a close and I hadn't even cast on a pair of February socks for Sock A Month 9.  So I did a very smart thing.  I dug out some pretty yarn and cast on a wee pair of socks, knowing that I could gift them to one of many new babies girls that would be arriving to my friends in the next couple of months.

February ended, and alas, the socks weren't finished.  March got underway, and the socks weren't finished.  March ended, and the socks weren't finished.  April got underway, and the socks weren't finished.  On Friday night, April finished up . . . and finally so did the socks!!!

Cast on: 26 February 2010
Completed: 30 April 2010
Yarn: Zwerger Garn Opal Petticoat
Needles: US1 (2.25mm) DPN

Cute? Yes.  Fun?  You bet!  Quick?  Not so much . . . but that is entirely the fault of the knitter!

Absolutely precious! I have a lot of respect for the folks doing SAM 9. I can't even seem to manage one pair a year.

I'm doing SAM9 too and some months it's tough to get a pair done. I've had my share of last second submissions.
