Beat the Clock

At 3:40 PDT Monday I have an appointment, at which time I have had (and continue to have) every intention of delivering a pair of handknit socks to my ankle surgeon.

We have discussed these socks many times before. As you are well aware, these socks have been the source of much knitting heartache for me. Here they are just before I started typing this post.

The one on top (previously known as Sock #2) needs about 2 more inches before the start of the toe decreases, Sock #1 (on bottom) is approximately 3.25" from the toe decreases. It is now 11:00 p.m. and I've just put on a pot of coffee. Taking into account that I have to work from 7:00 a.m. Monday morning until time to go to that appointment, what's the statistical probability that I will get them done in time? The likelihood will be greatly improved if I can convince my husband to do this weekend's laundry and if he will make sure we eat tomorrow.

Please send all available prayers, warm wishes, good thoughts and fast (accurate) knitting vibes.

Good luck with the socks :-) Better you than me!

I'm having no luck getting my assignment done - keep being distracted by other things.

"You can do it!" (feel free to apply either Rob Schneider's or Tony Little's voice to that . . . both of them are clamoring away in my head)
