One week before Christmas I cast on my last pair of socks for the holiday. They were for my youngest nephew who’s 5 so at least I wasn’t attempting an adult pair. Like everyone, I still had my regular life and holiday events to participate in, so I came up with a strategy to maximize my chances for success.
