Catchin' Up

Wow! Am I the only one left doing this Socks from Stash thing? That's so sad. And I haven't been doing it all that well. I'm not knitting a pair of socks a month. My knitting time is not what it was last year, or the year before. But I am still continuously knitting socks. They're just taking longer to get done.

Since my last post I've finished 2 pair.
