How long does it take…

How long does it take to knit a pair of socks?


I started this pair of socks on April 15, 2009, according to Ravelry. I even blogged about it that week. Apparently I finished the first sock and blogged about that, too on April 21, 2009, so 6 days for a sock.

Soon after, I started a new project, and set the socks aside. Just for a while, I thought. And then I forgot all about them.

Last week, a reader emailed me and asked about the twisted edging on the top of the sock, and I sent her a link. I told her that I hadn’t finished mine, and she encouraged me to do so. I found the sock, figured out where I was in the pattern, and here we go.

Let’s see how long it takes!

Oh, what’s that underneath? I bought a project bag from Slipped Stitch Studios. I love the Eiffel Tower, and this struck my fancy.


This drawstring bag is really nice; it has a squared bottom and is lined with a contrasting fabric. And it has two pockets inside!


I think I’ll put my socks inside, and take them knitting en plein air. Voila, La Tour Eiffel is getting to me already!
