Checking In

We made it home safely on Monday evening. The drive was exactly 9 hours long. However, I didn't knit in the car like I thought I would. So, no progress to show on Clapotis.

The other project I have going is a pair of socks. The first sock is finished and the second is started. Here's a sneak peek of the stitch pattern.

I'm using Baby Cable Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks plugged into Priscilla Gibson-Roberts' formula for sock knitting. So, you know there are also short-row heels and toes. The yarn is Soft Sea Wool.

I could have these socks finished in a day or two, if I put some effort into them, but knitting this week will not come easy. There are too many things scheduled that take priority over yarn and needles. And, that's the way it should be...sometimes.

  1. There is more to life than knitting. The sock looks very pretty!

  2. How pretty! The fiber is working up just beautifully! I love the stitch pattern. I know what you mean by fitting in knitting time. I wish I could do it all. You do have to have priorities right? Have fun with your socks! I can't wait to see you model them for us! Have a fantastic day!

  3. So pretty! Do you like the sea wool yarn? I've always wondered how it would be but haven't seen it in person.

  4. That's a great stitch pattern and very pretty in that yarn!
    Yep, you are right, sometimes knitting takes the back seat. Today around here, it took backseat to washing and ironing all the curtains.
    Yuck. : )

  5. Glad you got home safely. I love the socks and that book too! I am currently knitting a pair from that book and as soon as I make some progress with my Clapotis then I will start on another pair of socks. I will have to check that pattern in my book.
