I decided to join the Sock in a Day Challenge :X: http://everwhelming.blogspot.com/2007/05/sock-in-day.html I finished up the first sock of the pair I'm going to do. Will start the second sock today or tomorrow. I also made a mismatched pair of socks, Doby socks, if you will, for my grand daughter. Pics are on my blog.

It sounds cool - I've only made 1 pair, for a toddler, so far though so I dunno... I did just buy some lovely sock yarn yesterday though... Hmm...

Congratulations on finishing your sock in a day. There seems to be the option of working on one sock for up to 18 hours in a week, and there are two weeks, so 36 hours to finish a pair of socks over 2 weeks. That option doesn't sound like too much of a challenge. But a sock in a day, that sounds rough. How is your wrist today?

My wrist is fine, thanks! I am a SAHGM so I have a lot of knitting time every day. The challenge for me was dealing with the pressure of finishing it in one day...i.e., not putting down and picking up as I wanted to.

The 18 hours is easy for me...time wise, I could have done a pair in 18 hours. Just not 18 consecutive hours. :roflhard:
