I'm knitting gray marl wool socks now. These are 100% wool, the leftovers from the wool sweater I made early this year; I'm using size 5 needles, and my own pattern which is based on the Yankee Knitter #29, Classic Socks for the Family, except I don't have that pattern anymore, so I'm guessing how many stitches to cast on, how high to make the heel flap, how to turn the heel, stuff like that. You'd think with worsted weight socks, I could knit them pretty fast, but it feels like this is going slow.

I think the problem is my needles. They are Britanny 5" size fives, and I didn't like them when I had two hands, let alone one, so therefore I don't work on them. I'm using them instead of my longer size 5's because they are handmade birch, and too grabby with the wool, and I can't knit fast with them. I should get metal needles that will slide effortlessly, some cheap aluminum needles would do nicely. But I don't even do that, hehe. I am such a wimp. 

Oh, and NaNoWriMo?
