Decided.

To at least make an attempt at a new pair of socks for Dad on Sunday. I'll mend him at least one pair on Sunday, whether I finish these or not.

I don't expect to finish, but I'm more hopeful now that I've cast on. I forgot how quickly STR heavyweight knits up on size 4 needles. Never say never.

Happy Friday!!!

It's a great color for your father and it seems like you're making fantastic progress. I'm sure he won't mind at all getting them a few days late.
