The Knitty Board has a knit a sock in a day challenge (or within 18 hours spread across a few days) - this is the option I decided to try. Picture 1 - cast on and 1 row at 9.50am yesterday.
1 hour later the rib (12 rows of twisted rib) and 2 rows of pattern completed.
I decided not to make it easy for myself so I chose to knit another pair of Monkey socks with my jinxed sock yarn (every pair I've attempted with this yarn, I've hated and unpicked). So here is my sock 3 hours in 4 rows into my 4th pattern repeat.
6 hours - about 10pm last night. I mainly knit in 30 min intervals on and off the day with plenty of breaks. As it was belting down with rain a lot, it was a good day to sit and knit.
15th May - sock not touched until after lunch. 1 completed sock, total time 7 hours and 45 minutes. This is an adult UK size 5 sock knitted on 2.5mm dpns in Elan Sock it to me! Phew..... I had often wondered how long it would take me, now I know. I've cast on for the 2nd one and will attempt to complete the 2nd one in the 18 hour time limit.
