While I was at the conference, I got some knitting time in. The second Simple Stripes sock was started on Sunday, and I finished the heel on the drive home yesterday. Not while I was driving, though I probably could have since Interstate 70 through the entire state of Indiana is under construction and I got to drive the roadworks in both directions. People at the conference kept asking what I was doing and boggling at the thought of knitting socks. I made fraternal twins:
The Knit Picks Simple Stripes yarn is cooperating nicely, and I think it'll make a good pair of hard-wearing socks, but it pales in comparison with this: Mountain Colours Bearfoot yarn in Pheasant.
This is for Hubby. It is silky soft, beautifully shaded and I can't wait to start using it. Soon as the Simple Stripes socks are done, I'm starting this yarn. I got this at The Yarn Shop in Columbus between conference workshops.
