I did!

I got these done Monday with a week to spare for Christmas. I had to think of Farmer Boy, where Mother is trying to get socks done for everyone going off to “The Academy”:

“In the evenings Mother’s knitting-needles flashed and clicked. She knitted so fast that the needles got hot from rubbing together.”

(Full disclosure, I’m not that fast a knitter. But if you read enough Laura Ingalls Wilder growing up, you’re going to have a quote for nearly every occasion in your head.)
