The Well-Traveled Sock

Why, yes, it has been quite some time since you've heard from me. I'm sad to say it has almost been a month since my last post. And not that I haven't wanted to. Within there we had a trip to the East for a family wedding and fit in one day of family vacation at the NJ shore. I swear I've been knitting nothing else but Sockapalooza Socks since my last post. On my honor. They just seemed to take forever! Here they are, lifelines and all, FO'd just right after I took these photos:

Why yes, they are as eye-searing in real life. And I'm a little worried because I can't get them on my feet. But my sock pal has size 9s and I'm sporting my gargantuan size 11s. So hopefully they will fit her. Not long now! My next project is making some thrifty sock blockers.

So these socks have been in The Midwest, they have flown over much of the East Coast and have landed in Detroit and New Jersey and spent some time in Point Pleasant Beach. I call that a well-traveled sock pair indeed.

So stayed tuned...I can finally post about that other project I had started round about when I was mid-sock, before crunch time set in.

Your sock pal is going to love those! They look fantastic.

I think that's the same yarn and colorway that I used for my loksins. Is it Fleece Artist Merino?

They look great!
