I cast on the first of these socks almost a year ago, as I was sitting in my hospital bed waiting for things to get going on my induction. In the few hours before the contractions got too painful and close together to keep knitting, I finished most of the leg of the first sock.
Then almost all of my knitting time vanished. This winter, I discovered that I can knit in the car on the way to church or other activities in the nearest city (while my husband drives us there) - and I started making progress on my socks again. Then, the baby started sleeping more hours at night than I need to, and so we started to be able to watch a little bit of TV in the evenings after baby bedtime, and I started making more knitting progress. I finally finished these socks a few weeks ago, almost a year after I started them.
