I finished my fist sock using Silver's Tutorial mere moments ago! She makes it easy.
It only took me 2 months to do one sock, but that's because my kids managed to pull all my needles out just as I was getting ready to shape the toes. I only today got up the nerve to put all the stitches back. It was an easy sock, with the exception of my kids' "help." I think the second sock will be a breeze, provided I keep it out of reach!
