Where's Wool Winder?

Since socks are always my first choice for take-along knitting, here's proof that I've been on the go more than I've been at home lately.

Cast on in Oklahoma, knitted some in Louisiana, worked on a little bit at home (Texas) and finished in Utah. Only two weeks from start to finish. That's about as fast as it gets for me.

And the really great thing about this trip is that it coincides with the Great Basin Fiber Arts Fair this weekend. You can bet I'll be there tomorrow ready to buy a souvenir or two and say hello to a couple of blogging buddies. Can't wait!

  3. Oh, dear. You would just have to go and visit the rocky mountain region again, wouldn't you. So jealous!

    I'm also a tad envious of the perfectly striped and matching socks! I've either never found proper gauge or my yarn is defective, but self-striping yarn is not a friend of mine. :-)

    Enjoy your time out West!
