Big plans!   8 comments

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. πŸ™‚

  1. Awesome progress.

    • 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. πŸ™‚

  2. Fab. Shame that life gets in the way of progress πŸ˜‰

  3. wow, you got so much knitting done! I really love the bright coloured ones ^^

    • 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. πŸ™‚ 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.

  4. Thanks for reading and following. Great socks!
