Why is it the pattern that so many people have declared as a super fast knit is taking me forever?

I finally cast off the first Leyburn sock and keep meaning to cast on the second. It’s not that the pattern is hard or that I don’t like the way it is turning out.

I’m just slow and magic looping the cuff sure didn’t help speed things up. It worked fine but I spent the entire cuff thinking “I hate magic loop. why must I magic loop?”

In other fibery news. Ginger, Betty and I all signed up for a Rigid Heddle class in April. Yup. I’m going to see if I like weaving. It’s almost as if I can’t stand already knowing how to knit, spin, dye and crochet. I need to know how to weave too.
