Whenever we are going away,
one of the first things my husband asks me is
"What projects are you taking with you?"
I'm sure a lot of us are like that.
I start thinking about the projects LONG before
I think about the clothes I'm going to pack!
Well, on this Panama Canal cruise I took
Yarn, Needles, one pattern and my "Knit Kit."
(My husband gave this Knit Kit to me for
Christmas a couple of years ago and it
is perfect for traveling!!)
Knitting projects are much easier to pack then
quilting projects.... especially SOCKS!!
Well.... on this trip I had some time to knit!
In fact we had a number of days at sea and I
sat and knitted and watched the water a LOT!
(In between the walks, mini golf, reading, etc.!!)
I finished this pair, using "On Your Toes" yarn,
purchased at "Tuesday Morning" a long time ago.
These are just plain vanilla socks with the
short row heels.
This pair was finished, knitted with
Supersocke yarn in "New York" colorway.
These socks were knitted using this pattern from
Ann at Stray Threads.
Next, I started this pair of socks for a child.
Once again, I have lost the label for the yarn.
(I need to start putting the ball of yarn and the label in a baggie
so they stay together!)
This yarn is fun to knit with all of the different colors.
And last but not least....
.... this pair is being knitted with
Ambiente yarn.... so so soft!
These socks look like fall to me.
I have been knitting the short row heel and like these,
mainly because I don't have to have the pattern to knit them.
Hopefully these heels wear well.
When we got home, I was itching to get into my
"Hidey Hole" and sew something!
I signed up for another "Tuffet" class
and had the fabric for this next Tuffet,
so this is what I put together.
This one will be for my daughter...
The HUGE VCU fan!!
