I left my home this morning and there was no limo waiting outside for me. Huh? I took the subway to work. Yes, I have resumed my secret identity: a mild-mannered civil servant.
Oh well. What’s a girl to do? Just continue knitting.
I did actually finish something this past weekend, though I learned that signing books and knitting are two activities that sort of don’t mix.
Here are the Spirit Trail socks:
As previously mentioned, I used Spirit-Trail 100% superwash wool yarn and my generic toe-up pattern. I did a simple lace rib on the leg of the socks that goes like this:
Row 1: (k2, yo, sl1, k2tog, psso, yo, k1) around.
Rows 2 – 4: knit
So, I started another sock. I couldn’t resist the Claudia Handpainted yarn that I bought on Saturday, so that’s what I started.
The colorway is “Donna’s Favorite” and I am quite entranced by the way it is knitting up.
My Other Travel Knitting
You might remember that I posted a photo of my wool/mohair handspun last week and indicated that it was going with me on my trip last weekend as well.
It is on its way to becoming a Flower Basket Shawl.

I’ve Got a Small Problem
I wanna watch tv, but Lucy’s hogging the remote.
