Here we see one totally finished, very neat anniversary sock that was given to my boy last year.

What's my problem? I still have another one to make for this anniversary and I have no motivation to complete it. I have so much more to do- I'm making it for a size 14 foot. That's 11 and some inches of foot!

Can anyone see a silver lining or am I doomed to knit this thing for the rest of my life?

Can anyone see a silver lining... ?

You may be doomed to knit that thing for the rest of your life, but if you spend 30 minutes a day on it, you'll be done before Valentine's day.

 OTOH, I've found that the legend of big feet = big Shocked are fairly accurate. Sounds like a silver lining to me.

TV/movie knitting. Just whip that sucker out whenever you're watching the tube.

The 1st one looks really really good!  It looks so professional!  But now you can see why I knit mine at the same time!  Even on double points, I bought 2 sets of each size.   I agree pick it up for 30 minutes every day or make yourself to a certain number of rounds before you can knit something else.  I do that all the time, I'll get so sick of knitting something so I force myself to do X amount to rows (or rounds) before picking up what I really want to knit.

Good luck and let us know when you finish! 

ScotSkipper, you cracked me up!
