Lord, I Was Born a Ramblin' Man
While we're all trying to guess where my socks are traveling these days (if you haven't, go enter yesterday's contest), let's look at some other traveling socks. I started these when I was in Norfolk, finished the first sock in Seattle, knit them through Christmas in Pennsylvania, and (finally) finished the second sock in Providence. Not only that, but the stitch pattern is one of traveling stitches. Isn't that clever?
Canal du Midi Socks
Pattern: Knitting on the Road by Nancy Bush
Yarn: Lanett Superwash 100% merino fingering weight in pale blue
Needles: US 1 dpns
Notes: My first star toe - supercute.
Best Thing About This Project: The way you can read the pattern off the socks once you've set up the repeats. It's just like carrying a pattern with you, but one less thing to lose. Perfect for traveling.
Stay tuned tomorrow for the exciting conclusion to "guess where my socks have been." Competition is tight - this one might come down to the wire!
