Making progress

The blanket is growing nicely with all the pretty colours.
Such a fun relaxing project. 

The brown blob in the centre is the Father's next sock. It's true I only finished one of the last pair but I sent that home with the Mother a couple of weeks ago for a fitting and while I got confirmation that it is the right size I didn't keep good enough notes to make another one to match without having the first one to refer to!
The Father is having a birthday next week so I decided it was time for a personal challenge. I intend to finish a pair before the day. This is the leg section of the first sock, instead of moving immediately onto the foot I have cast on the second sock and will work on the leg of that one while I am out and about this afternoon.
He will get a much anticipated pair of socks - eventually.
Lucky I work well with a deadline.

Anybody else out there leave things until the last minute?

Hope the sun is shining in your corner today.

I always leave things to the last minute and wish I wouldn't but can't seem to help myself. Procrastination is my middle name. :) Lovely blanket. Good luck getting the socks done. Tammy

I have complete faith that you can finish the socks before the deadline. Ive seen you pull off amazing feats before.

I am constantly leaving things until the last minute, in fact, my work day today is going to be full of playing catch up for that very reason!
