Time for a mid week check in on the knitting and reading . . .…
I made another pair of Monkey Socks. I chose the pattern because it’s entertaining and easily memorized. And I chose the yarn (Woolen Rabbit Rosemary & Thyme Superwash) because I knew I’d be spending time with Kim and I thought she’d enjoy seeing me knit with her yarn while we were together.
I started them at the airport in Providence and by the time I got to Phoenix (name that tune!) I had finished the leg and heel flap.
When my plane landed in Salt Lake City I had finished the gusset decreases and was halfway down the foot of sock one.
And by the time I was on my way home, I had finished sock two. In fact, I kitchenered the toe while waiting to board the plane that would take me from Baltimore to Providence and ultimately home.
5 days for a pair of socks. A record for me. And my twentieth pair in 2007.
