Cruise Socks

Finally done! These socks were my travel knitting when we went on our Panama Canal cruise last year. When we returned from the cruise I set them aside to do Christmas gift knitting followed by test knitting. Imagine my surprise when I picked them up last week to find that only the toes remained to be knit. Instant gratification.

Do you like my little helpers? They must have thought the bright colors resembled carrots.

Pattern: Pomatomus by Cookie A
Yarn: Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in colorway Bittersweet
Needles: US 1 (2.25 mm)
Notes: Love this pattern. The first time I knit it I was really pushing my skills in terms of socks and knitting from a chart. I had to pay very close attention to every single row. Now, several years of experience later, the pattern is a breeze in which I only have to refer to the chart when the motif changes.

For fun, here is the first pair of socks I knit from this pattern (also knit with Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock).

    me again – despite the however many times I’ve looked at pics of Blondie, I didn’t realize she was Harry Potter’s horse with that lightning bolt on her nose…..
