I planned to make socks for Rob and thought I'd practice first with a pair for me.
I finished one nearly three years ago and now just finished the other. My tension changed in the mean time, so the most recently completed one is almost an inch longer than the other. Oops!
Rob's socks, of course, have been done for over two years. I stopped making mine so I'd get his done in time. Even then, I had to change it from a Christmas present to a birthday one. Sigh. There just aren't enough hours in the day.
