Doing the Math
A tiny bit of calculation has revealed that the current pair of socks will, when finished, be made up of about 14,400 stitches. A further bit of calculation has revealed that I’ve got about 1,550 stitches left to go before I finish the second sock. This means I am about 89% done. Really, it’s three inches and a toe. It’s three hours of knitting. So why in the world is it taking me so long to do? And does anyone else figure out how many stitches are in a project and obsessively track how much you’ve finished?
