Those socks are done.
From the start as fiber that I got as a Christmas 2008 grab bag.
I spun the fiber into yarn from Dec 26th 2008 to Approximately March 22 2009.
I plied the yarn from March 22 ~ March 24th.
I cast on Approximately April 7th
I bound off tonight 5/22/2009
No wonder it felt as if I was knitting these
an eternity ... I had my hands on them for about
six months in one form or another.
Now I know why people in the OLD days
only had two or three pair of socks
at a time.
They took forever to make.
