Since last time I was here, I’ve been to Europe and back! My family was lucky enough to go on a Disney Cruise that started in Barcelona, and took us through the Mediterranean. (At some point I’ll have the energy to post photos here, really. Probably.) It was amazing! I was so crazy relaxed (sometimes) or tired from trying to see all of a city like Rome in one day (most of the other times) that I barely picked up my knitting at all.
I know, I don’t believe it either.
The perfect yarn to take on a big international trip, right? I got started before I left.
I chose Artemis, the easier seeming of the 2 patterns- easier is better for travel, right?
By the time we flew home a week later, I had only gotten this far:
I did mange to turn the heel before we got home… And then it really didn’t take me long to finish the pair. (PS as an aside, please note how perfectly my vodka matches the yarn!)
The pattern had a nice twist in the foot- a section of ribbing around the arch. I may incorporate it into more projects in the future. Not sure if you can really see it in the photos, but the columns of cables are actually different- one twists at even intervals, and not the other. It’s very neat!
I’ve already got the heel turned on another sock, so, I’ll be back soon. For real. I think.
