I'm joining with Kat and my fellow knitters today to take about knitting, unraveling, and…
The socks I have to show you today have been a year in the making. Not literally but, well, sort of. You see, I wound up this yarn – Perchance to Knit Merino Sock – last year before we went on our trip to Mexico. The colors reminded me of Mexico. Or something.
Anyway. I caked the yarn and brought it with me but I never actually cast on the socks. Somehow, I just didn’t knit as much as I thought I would. I blame the tequila.
I finally started them back in February, though, and I made up my mind I would have them finished before this year’s trip. I’m just sneaking them in under the wire here, aren’t I?
They are very colorful and very soft and very nice. I love this little rainbow bit on the heel.
And I love that they remind me of Mexico even though they really shouldn’t.
Let’s hope whatever I take with me this year gets finished in a more timely manner.

Timely, shimly. Have fun! Drink tequila and party like you’re in Mexico!! The knitting can wait.
what Margene said! enjoy your trip!
Pretty and festive stripes! It’s hard sometimes to figure out which simple projects to take on the road that won’t be boring. Variegated yarn really helps keep interest.
Great colors and definitely Mexico colors! Enjoy your vacation, relax, and enjoy the tequila! So glad your “bug” was a quick one and you are over it.
Those socks are piñata colored socks! 🙂 Very pretty.
And if it doesn’t…oh well! The socks are very pretty – you can’t help but wear a smile along with them!
Those socks/yarn fall under what is termed ‘Emergency Backup Knitting’ in my travel bag. Just the security of having something more allows one to relax and enjoy the trip. I’d say they worked really well in your case.
They look like a FIESTA! That’s why!! 🙂
The socks are so fun–bright, cheerful colors that definitely evoke sun-washed Mexico. As to setting deadlines for yourself–remember the byword “Manana!”. (That is except when you’re contemplating a margarita in your beach chair!)
Good for you getting them finished!!!
Those are beautiful. I love the edging.
Hey at least they are finished! And I agree – the colors remind me of Mexico too. Are you counting down the hours till you get on the plane?
Carole, I hope you’re feeling better today. Have a wonderful time in Mexico! Drink some margaritas for me.
They are Mexico colors! Take knitting with this year but don’t worry about actually knitting. Enjoy the tequila. 😉
Amazing socks love the colour have a great holiday
Great socks! I went to Jamaica in February and I think I knit two rows. 🙂
Those are some awesome socks!
