sock mania continues

You'd think I'd be tired of socks, right? Especially after knitting three pairs in rapid succession! Nope, sock mania continues here ... this month my daughter is in a summer half-day program at our local elementary school, and this is my first ever time experiencing the hurry-up-and-wait joys of the school carpool line. And hence, my first ever carpool knitting project! Plain vanilla socks here, but with super fun self-striping yarn.


And since I clearly cannot be a monogamous knitter, I'm test knitting the lovely Brandy's first sock pattern, Mont Royal Socks. They are stunning and the pattern is flawless. Addictive and fun lace knitting here!
 Yup, these are toe-up. My first adult-sized short row heel!


Last but not least, I'm working up a tiny LSU-themed striped baby hat for a co-worker's super-premie nephew who has battled it out in the NICU for months now and is in the homestretch to get to come home!


Today I'm linking up with Tammy's Stitch-Along Wednesday, Ginny for Yarn Along, and Nicole for Keep Calm Craft On.

  7. LOL, "hurry up and wait!" Girl, does that ever cover the "sitting in the minivan, waiting for the kids to finish school activities" line up. Love that! And love your socks too. Enjoy knocking them out while the fever lasts. Feels great to have extras on hand to give as Christmas gifts. :)
