Ok. So that one week deadline may have been a bit ambitious. I’m making great progress, but I think this will be a Christmas gift and not a birthday gift. Just to state the obvious, knitting a pair of socks in a week is next to impossible if you’re the mother of a toddler and a baby.
I’m knitting the foot to 8.25 inches before starting the toe. Right now the foot measures 6 inches, so I’m close! I’m loving these more and more every day. I think it’s the stripes. I’m a sucker for stripes. 🙂
