Late Christmas Trip

I am happy to report that socks I made for my son-in-law fit him and that he is going to enjoy them. I will have to remember that I used a 64 stitch basket weave pattern and that I did 20 repeats of the pattern on the foot, that I used Wool-Ease yarn with size 2 needles.

So the picture I have up is the latest sock I started on the road trip to Lincoln NE. The weather going down was o.k., but the weather coming back was really bad. A nine hour trip turned into a 12 hour trip because of the bad roads. it left us wondering about canceling a road trip next time if the forecast calls for bad weather.

So the sock again in a domino sock from the Socks Two book. I liked how the last one turned out so I am doing it again. I am just using a self stripping yarn to make this. I am also only making the squares in a stockinette stitch. I have already had to frog this sock a few times already, so hopefully I will not have to do that anymore. I it much easier to frog a crocheted project that a knitted project.


  1. It's more accurate to say that he loves them. He hasn't taken them off in 24 hours. He wears them to bed, and he wore them to work -- and they're apparently very comfortably.

    I think that's a win. :D
