Far too long. I wish I could knit faster. I have a pattern for chunky yarn weight socks and those knit up quickly. I love them in my winter shoes. I have patterns for worsted weight too, and although I don't know how long they took exactly, they didn't take too long. I'm about to knit some with sock yarn next. I did do the sandal socks in it, and it went more quickly than I expected, so maybe I won't give up. :crying: Good luck with yours! samm who doesn't mean to be discouraging at all. I quite enjoy the round and round and round.......

I've been knitting socks two-at-a-time. I've been working on them for about 3 hours so far, and I'm only 1/2 way done with the cuff. So, I'm going to guess that they'll take 9 or 10 hours for a pair. Yah, I'm kinda slow.

Hope that helps.

My time varies from sock to sock; depends upon the size needle & complexity of the pattern

My first two pair took about a week. (I can only knit on weekends and at night) I'm working on the Broadripple socks and have frogged the first sock 3 times. But I've up-sized my needles and think this will be the last time. I think/hope the gauge will be right this time.

I can take over a week per sock, sometimes two. I'm working on a pair now that is cabled, with size 2 dpns and sock weight yarn for myself (adult size). I only knit at night after the day's work is done. Knitting is my reward so I sit back for an hour or two per night and enjoy the process, both knitting and tinking, rather than thinking when the finished project will be ready. I think I'm the worlds slowest knitter, but I don't care.

You might want to check the date of threads before you post. This thread is from 5/2006 so it's 7 yrs old.
