Please don't ask me how long it takes to knit a pair of socks. This pair is a great example of how it's never a simple answer. I believe I started them early in the summer of 2014, when we were going to a Movie in the Park and wanted something simple to work on (in the dark). Isn't that how it always starts? "Something simple". "Brainless". Yeah, right. Actually, these started before that...back in early 2010 I started to learn to use my ribber. I made some socks, and tried this yarn--because I knew it needed to be knit rather plainly. I think I made one sock, and it came out too big. Rob said it fit him, but I knew he'd never wear them. I always thought I'd get back to them but decided to HK this instead.
I haven't worn them yet, but they seemed to be functional. A little odd looking,, both colour wise and pattern wise...but I don't care! There is a time and place for odd socks.
I ended with a 2.5mm needle, though I don't know what I started with. Not sure of the yarn!
Yarn In: 2876gr
Yarn Out: 75gr + 4522gr = 4447gr
Balance: 1571gr more used UP than brought in
Costs: $139.55/229 days = $0.61/day
Of course, I did buy a bit more yarn for the custom Christmas stockings I'm doing, and I got started on them. And another pair of simple socks...so far, I've only redone the toes once! :)
