Finally getting back to these - they are anniversary socks for T(our anniversary was Sept. 4th -- oops!). Picked them up yesterday with the intent to knit them at a Thanksgiving dinner at my sister-in-law's meal at the campground, then broke a Bryspun dpn (that's never happened to me before, so I didn't think to have a spare set with me). Started back up when I got home (transferred them to my new Harmony dpns~ love them!) and picked away on them today.
I promised him they'll be done before Halloween - I think if I devote myself to them, and try not to get distracted by Red Hatter purses, craft sale knitting and those adorable sock monkeys waiting to be knit (thanks, Chelle!), I should be able to finish them over the next few evenings.
