I finally finished the Phellogen socks. I still don't know why it took me so long. I loved the pattern. I love to cable. So the only possible explanation is that the socks unknit themselves at night so that I would keep working on them forever.
They do look much better on than they do in this picture, by the way. It was totally worth the time it took to knit them.
