Car Ride Knitting

This holiday season we drove down to Wichita to spend the holiday with my husband’s family. It was a great time mixed with food, friends, family, ER visits, and plenty of knitting time.

I had every intention of knitting on the Girasole afghan this weekend in order to make more progress to ensure I had it complete before the Jan 17th deadline of the recipients leaving the country. That didnt’ happen once. I didn’t take it out of it’s plastic grocery sack all weekend!

Instead I started knitting on my sock in the car and continued that knitting all weekend. 

Done with the gusset!

I made some serious progress on it this weekend. I have about 1.5 inches left before I begin to decrease for the toe. I decided to continue the k3, p1 ribbing on the bottom of the foot, when I finished the gusset to make it a bit more form fitting for my foot. (I have skinny feet!)

This is mostly a made up pattern for me. I love the self-striping Regia yarn I’m using! I sure hope it softens a bit when I wash them, as it is a little bit stiff and scratchy to me right now.

I have to say that’s about all I accomplished this weekend! I love how the sock was the perfect size to tote around to various relatives homes for sitting and talking and opening gifts!

  1. I’ve never used Regia but I’ve heard it’s a sock yarn that can stand up to the elements!
