In Between

I’m between challenge socks right now and was going for a road trip over the weekend.  I needed some knitting to take with, because after all riding in the car is prime knitting time.  However, I couldn’t take the current project since it’s more gift knitting, so I was left with a bit of a dilemma.  Time to shop the stash!

I finally decided to jump on the Monkey bandwagon, and grabbed two skeins of the Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in the limited editions I compulsively buy (but never seem to knit).  Cranked up the new swift (it’s spiffy) and the old ball-winder (it’s reliable), and soon had two neat balls of yarn ready for a Monkey whim.  I cast on Friday night, knitted my way from Chicagoland to central Illinois, knitted sporadically through the family get-together, knitted my way home, and then knitted through the ill-fated Bears/Packers NFC Championship (though I frequently had to pause to cheer/curse/weep over the course of the game.)

I now have most of a sock.

Colourway is Mother Earth, which was the March limited edition.

    Pretty. For a minute, it looked like the sock was on DPNs. 😉
