Big plans!

40 hours in the car with someone who prefers to drive than ride? I knew I was in for some serious knitting!

I brought a pair of socks in the works, and yarn for three more pairs. As well as yarn and beads all strung and ready for earrings and necklaces.

I plugged away on the dark gray socks, and when we arrived in Charleston after 20 plus hours of driving, this is where I was on sock 2.

The night before we left I powered through that last bit of leg, having done barely a row a day up to that point.

On the way home, I cast on the Dyeabolical bright yarn I got back in March, and then things started really moving.

I finished one sock each day of the trip home, so by the time we arrived home again, I had 2 new pairs of socks!

So naturally, I sat down and cast on the next pair.

They are moving more slowly. Something about laundry, grocery shopping, and now, work. 🙂

    1. thanks! Not sure why I thought I would make nearly 4 pairs of socks and two necklaces and one pair of earrings, though. I guess I thought it would rain all week. 🙂

    1. thanks! I basically sat and knit all the daylight hours of the car ride. but I did make better progress on the fun ones than I did on the more useful gray ones. 🙂 Now I am onto the pink ones. They are kind of pretty, too. I had a meeting today, so I got the heel half turned on the first one. Things will slow down a bit now, only one more meeting this week, I think.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
