Yet more socks!

Lots of time on a plane, travelling across the country has turned into another pair of socks for me:
Pattern: Same old basic pattern, Yarn: Blue Moon Socks that Rock, Weight: Medium, Colorway: No idea

This yarn was some that I bought at the Blue Moon stash sale last Fall. I wrote a bit about the sale here. It is the one in the middle in the first yarn picture. It was the only one that didn't look like anything in their current line. I'm going to guess that it was something they tried out but never sold. In the skein and in the above picture, it looks very blue and yellow. In person though, there is a lot of green where the two colors met and bled together - something I think was probably not intended. Overall, the knit socks don't look exactly like I had hoped, but I'm still pretty happy with them.

This was my first time using STR and I thought the yarn was really nice to knit with, very sproingy and soft. I actually knit the entire first sock on my trip East and had to make myself wait to start the second one until I was on the plane, heading home.

It still went really fast and I ended up having to work on my husband's boring vest. I was smart (?) and didn't bring any other knitting. The vest saw quiet a bit of action while I was in my hotel and on the last part of the return home. It's still not even ready to be seamed up though. It sure is turning into a slog...

Anyway, long trip = happy socks for happy feet!

Yes, I think you were smart to not take any other knitting. Sometimes that's the only way I get things done! :)
Awesome socks!
