I'm happy with them though.

In case you're wondering...I have 2 socks with the gusset done and ready for heel class tonight. Also have 3 more toes cast on and one of them has about to 4" of foot.
Are you doing two at a time with magic loop?? I just never got the hang of two at a time and didn't like magic loop as well though I know people swear by it. I just use my good ole dpn's. One thing I found was if you are making socks like I did for my son, really big and long, use bigger needles, it goes faster. I had 96 st on my needles for his socks and they took me forever.
