As I claim this is a knitting blog, let me bore you with another pair of socks: סתם גרביים = stam garbaim as I will define them in Hebrew or just another pair of socks in English:
What is a bit interesting about these socks is where I knit them, as they were travelling socks and actually it started even before the knitting.
I got the yarn: Regia Design Line Kaffe Fassett from Margene when we met in Flagstaff, Arizona on our way to Sedona and Jerome to introduce Margene to Erica (and to Erica’s amazing yarn shop), so I guess it was purchased in Utah.
The lovely sock waited patiently in my stash, it was patted occasionaly, it was taken out and looked at but got his (yes, yarn is a he in Hebrew so his it is in my blog unless I think differently on some yarn,,,) time on the needles only recently.
(Oh, if I summarize this lucky sock travels I have to mention the big trip it made with the rest of my stash from Arizona to Toronto too, right?)
After I enjoyed very much knitting the Regia Stretch Crazy Sock yarn I took out my special Regia yarn and declared that this pair is for me! I wanted the socks to show off the colors without any disturbance from a pattern but I wanted the socks to be well fitted not loose like some stockinette socks seem to be (or at least the ones I knitted) so I decided on a very large rib of 5×1 and started knitting them happily just before we went to Buffalo to meet my sister in the train station.
As we had some time before the train was scheduled to arrive, we took the sock to see the Niagara Falls:
A week or so later, we went on a road trip that took the sock and us to lovely places. It appears I remembered to take photos of the poor sock only in New Harbor, Maine:
The next morning when we went for a little walk I found this spot:
And then I found my dream house:
The beach near this house looks like this:
Well, after Maine we went back to Toronto but Joe found a long route that took us to the very lovely Quebec City. Unfortunately, I didn’t take any photos of my sock in progress there – shame on me.
Before I leave you, as we are talking about my knitting, here is a progress shot of my Maplewing:
And I can’t finish my post today without wishing everybody:
