I don't like doing the gusset of socks. I don't particularly hate it so much that I can't finish a sock (as my Sock FOs will prove).
It's something like a Wednesday. Wednesdays are smack in the middle of a working week, like the gusset is somewhat in the middle of a sock.
When you're done with Wednesday, Friday will get here in a blink of an eye.
When you're done with the gusset, the toes will soon be begging for the Kitchener.
So yes, when I (eventually) finish my mum's cardigan, I hope to be making socks by the week.
