Could it be?

Why, it is! It's a finished object!

I can't get a decent photo, so that one of me waggling my feet in the air will have to do.

Pattern: Generic sock pattern.

Yarn: Curious yarns sock yarn in 'Forest Walker'

Needles: 2.5mm inox dpns

Why did they take so long?: Basically, I cast on for these with the intention of them being a birthday present for someone. All was going well until I went to Skip North back in March with a nearly finished pair of socks. I thought I'd turn the heel whilst listening to a talk from some interesting maths knitterly peeps. Unfortunately it turns out I can't turn heels in the dark whilst drunk and sniggering with other drunken knitters, and the resulting cockeyed heel caused the sock to get shoved in my bag where it languished unloved til last week.

One FO down, a gazillion to go.

Nice! I think you've said all there is to say about knitting for a while. Why don't you have a nice rest and take tomorrow off from blogging :)

She better not post any gooey baby photos. I will be most displeased. Surely it's illegal to photograph that kind of stuff anyway?

I didn't see any drunken knitters at the maths talk!

Vision problems perhaps (hic)

Hmmm, I seem to have some recollection of certain other knitters drinking a fair amount of the red stuff too...

Why is that we knitters persist in trying to knit in the dark whilst tiddly over and over again when we KNOW it means a deal of frogging the next day.
I think this lesson ought to be added to your list from yesterday making it numero 8.
Good socks - excellent FO. good blogging.
