New Socks

I mentioned that I was on to the next socks after finishing the last brown pair, and here they are. (I have lots of drive time coming up - I need small, portable projects!)

(side note - this is a preset post - I'm actually off on a field trip today with the boy's class to the Air and Space Museum at Downsview Airport, and I'll be knitting these on the trip!)

My husband adores Socks That Rock, and while at the Knitter's Frolic in April, I picked up this multicoloured skein (ballband misplaced, and name totally forgotten...). The only complaint he has about the STR is that the socks are just a touch short. So I found this orphan ball of green tonal Koigu (probably left over from my Mom's flamingo mitts), and it matched really well. Husband was amenable to green toes, heels and cuffs in order to get a longer sock, so off I go.
Toe is done, and now it's straight knitting without shaping, or thinking until I run out of the STR.
Considering the state of my mind right now, I think I can handle that...

I hear you about being brain fried. Thankfully today is Friday and we'll be able to take some much needed rest.

More socks...how fun! I love making socks and how portable they are. I might even like making them more than I like wearing them. Happy knitting! Have a terrific weekend! :-)

Ah, the good old days of chaperoning school field trips. So glad I'm done with that.

Did you go by school bus on the field trip? We just went to the iodine with Sean's class and I did some crochet on the bus. So much fun.
