My first pair of socks for the Ravelympic sock put was a pair of Thuja socks for my husband. Started on 8/8 and finished on 8/10. These were nice and quick due to the sixe 7 needles and worsted weight yarn.
Since I have three pairs planned, I've decided to score myself as follows: One pair - Bronze, Two pairs - SIlver, Three pairs - Gold
I am one sock into my second pair, Grandiflora, which is going slower since I'm down to size 1 needles and fingering yarn.
