I actually finished something "on time", if you consider socks that were started in August valid entries into Socktoberfest. I kitchenered the toe in the evening after my last post, and cast on my Mom's sock - Dublin Bay Socks from Mossy Cottage.
It's really hilarious - the first sock took nearly 2 months, and the second one took 10 days. I just might get Mom's completed for her in time for Christmas, especially because they're pretty much entirely stockinette.
I promise I'll post pics when the sun starts co-operating.
