road trippin' day 12 - 15

I laughed when I looked at the pictures I took for our travels back home--you can tell we were on a mission to make it back, because there are zero snapshots other than my sock progress! (that and I was running out of space on my memory card!)

Day 12: Yakima, Washington to Twin Falls, Idaho


Started the day off at this point on the second sock, and finished it in Oregon! Happy to say I finished this pair while in the three west coast states!


Day 13: Twin Falls, Idaho to Cheyenne, Wyoming

  

Started the day off with the beginning of my last pair of socks for the trip, wondering if I could finish one more pair in the remaining travel time ... 


Day 14: Cheyenne, Wyoming to Kansas City, Kansas


Started the day having turned the heel and gusset decreases, ended it with a finished sock!


Day 15: Kansas City, Kansas to Starkville, Mississippi


 Started the day with the cuff of the second sock done, and raced raced raced knitting the fastest sock of the entire trip ... and had everything but the toe decreases done when we pulled into the driveway!


 And now the finished socks!
Pattern: Make Your Heels Strong (link to my Ravelry project page)
Yarn: String Theory Colorworks Resonance

Pattern: Chains Socks (link to my Ravelry project page)
Yarn: White Birch Fiber Arts

Pattern: Mojo (a freebie: pattern page, my Ravelry project page)
Yarn: Western Sky Knits Magnolia Sock (colorway: Rocky Point)
Notes: These socks are inspired by Mojo--I used the ribbing patterns, but then chose my own sequencing. These socks are super squishy and cozy--they will be perfect in the winter!

Needless to say, this was an epic trip that we will remember for ages. And I can't believe I knit three pairs of socks in basically less than two weeks! That is equally epic for me. Now back to my regularly scheduled summer knitting and sewing projects, my friends!

  2. Super sock knitting! Those Mojo socks look super crazy when they aren't on a foot, but they also look super cozy.
