Road Trip Socks

Over the three day weekend, the husband and I ventured to Ohio for his family's annual picnic. That left me with several hours of good knitting time this weekend. While I have lots of good projects on the needles, I decided what I really wanted was to knit up that beautiful Felici yarn.

If you follow me on Twitter, you already saw these, but I thought I would share them here for the Twitterless.

Here is my sock somewhere between our house and the Indiana border (i.e. still in Illinois):

By the time we were in the middle of Indiana, my sock looked like this:

When the sock entered Ohio, the waste yarn had been placed for the afterthought heel and I was still happily knitting along.

Over the couple of days that we were in Ohio, the sock barely got any love. Just a row here and there in the morning at the hotel. So on the way home I knit like the wind and eventually was ready to try an afterthought heel for the very first time:

I completely love this sock. I started on its mate last night after we got home. Took a little bit to get the second one started. I had to wind and cut some of the yarn so I could start it in the same place as the first. For (I think) the first time ever, I am attempting to have perfectly matching stripey socks.

How was your weekend? Do anything fun?
