How long does it take a cat to knit a pair of stockings?

Baby Cat started these stockings about a year and a half ago, around Christmas 2011! No, it doesn't take a year and a half to knit a pair of stockings, but Baby Cat made one fatal mistake! Although she thought she had the right gauge, she didn't check carefully enough and when she finished the first stocking, it didn't fit. 

Baby Cat made the second stocking a size bigger and it fit perfectly! So she unraveled the first one, but by then was pretty tired of working on stockings and set the finished one aside for about a year to work on other projects. This summer, Baby Cat picked up the sock yarn again, and now the socks are finally finished! Hopefully, Baby Cat will be more careful with her gauge in the future!

These stockings were made from the "Sitio Stockings" pattern in the book Vampire Knits.
