I was going to bring something other than Ripple and Weave on the road to Pittsburgh (I know we flew, but it still felt like being on the road), but sanity regained the upper hand and I brought the sock in disgrace (and a backup project).
Every morning and evening after I was done with my studying and the important work of the day, I worked on the sock. I love the twisted stitches and how everything just comes together beautifully. The colors are perfect for the season, and it is past time to send these socks onto their happy home.
I left the 3-needle bindoff for home. With the first sock I lost a lot of stitches, because I still had them on the needles (and tried to turn the sock inside out with the needles still in). This time I plan to put the stitches on waste yarn before turning the sock inside out.
So, with the socks nearly done, I started my "on the road" project: the Ribwarmer from the Fall 2006 Vogue Knitting. I had bought the yarn about a year ago, and hadn't done it. So far, it is turning out to be a pretty quick knit with an easy to memorize cable pattern. I'm up to the left side now (it is worked in one piece from right side, right shoulder, back, etc.). I'm enjoying working on something that just leaves people scratching their heads, wondering what it is going to be.
