Of course I'm guessing on how many more socks I'm going to knit. I guess I'll just keep knitting up until Christmas or until I get tired of socks. Or like Faythe, I develop some sort of knitting induced injury.
I finished one sock and am half way through the leg on the second one. I'm using the Chutes-N-Ladders pattern by Pam Gordnier found only through the Fun Sox Yahoo group. I didn't realize cables would reduce elasticity this much so they're a little tight on the leg but I have fat legs, I'm sure they'll fit the recipient just fine.
