Socks and Silver Lake

I finished my socks on our trip to Utah. It was probably all the air travel time that helped me get them done. Also I spent most of the this trip recovering from the previous one. Stayed in the hotel knitting and catching up on the computer.

Pattern: Basic Crew Socks (2x2 ribbed leg, short row heels and toes, worked on 64 sts.)
Needles: US 1 double points
Yarn: Online Supersocke 100 (45% cotton, 40% wool, 15% polyester)
Knitting time: Aug. 23 to Oct. 5


John and I always like to drive to Silver Lake when we're in Salt Lake City. Since this was a working trip with activities scheduled for the evening, the only time we could squeeze it in was yesterday morning before our flight. The weather was grey and overcast as it had been for most of the week, but even so, the lake was beautiful.

So what's a knitter to do when she finishes a pair of socks? Cast on another pair, of course.

This is working up quickly, but isn't that the way it always goes with the first one?

  1. Basic socks go anywhere while knitting or wearing. Siler Lake is one of those places that always looks great no matter the weather. It's still raining...more snow in the mountains. Shorts are the last thing on my mind today! LOL

  9. Great lake photos. I think I'll have to take my family up there. I haven't been since I was a teenager. I love the socks - both the finished pair and the bright one on needles.

  10. I am so jealous that you know how to knit socks. I am hoping to learn still. Maybe after the holidays when my list is slightly smaller, I can learn. Hope that you had a great vacation. Sounded like it from your blog entries.

  11. The socks look great, especially with denim.

    I always have a sock project on the go, so transportable.

    Beautiful photos, some place names in the states are very familiar to me obviously through movies, tv etc. and Salt Lake City is one of them. Thanks for sharing parts of your wonderful country with us :)
