Trek Along With Me...

...one last time.

This is a well traveled pair of socks, having been knit in Utah, Texas, Iowa and Oklahoma. This last Trek Along takes place in downtown Edmond, Oklahoma. It was too hot for anything more than a walk down the street to view a few of the many bronze statues that are scattered throughout the town.

As you can see, these socks are 99.99% Trekking XXL. They are the first pair I've ever knitted for my husband. I just assumed I would have enough yarn and I almost did...so close. When I couldn't find more Trekking in the same color, I had to improvise with another brand of yarn in a complementary color. A good wife and knitter would have ripped out the first sock toe and worked it in black to match the second, but I'm pronouncing these "finished as is". John, the next pair will match, I promise.

  1. Wow, I love those sculptures! Especially the stilts - I used to have some when I was growing up.

    The Trekking socks are great and have certainly travelled more than mine.

  2. I love the last sculpture with the birds. That's a great fix on the socks. They are uniquely yours and Js. Nice going! It was fun to Trek with so many knitters this summer! How can it be over!?

  3. They are lovely just the way they are. That's what makes them so unique. They were made with love!

  4. Love the statue of the woman and child on the park bench - probably because that's the one I can relate to the most. The socks look great! Love the improvisation. :o)
