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.
