Knitting Conditions: Practically Perfect

Vacation passed in a flash! It was very hot, but we had a great time. I was able to visit Knitting Sisters. They had lots of yummy yarny goodness. I left with 2 new balls of sock yarn.

ON-line Winter Color #887, a 6-ply sock yarn and ON-line Highland Color #843

There was no time for knitting while on vacation. We returned on Friday and right away I had to start the laundry. My 2 youngest sons were going away for the weekend and needed clothes. So, I didn't get back to my knitting until yesterday.

I completed my Trekking #23 socks.

I also started a pair of socks for my youngest son. I think the leg is long enough as is, but I want him to try them on before I move on to the heel. This is Regia Jacquard color #5173.

Progress on my Trekking #135 socks is still slow, but I am getting there.

More knitting is planned for today and tomorrow (I don't go back to work until Tuesday). And since none of the kids are home, I should get lots of uninterrupted knitting time.
