Good Times

I'm finally back! The trip was fun, but there was definitely too much work involved to call it a vacation. Either way, it was a nice break from city life and gave me a chance to see family and friends.

Unlike my last few trips, I did manage to knit a substantial amount while away. I knit up these lovely Hedera socks in one of my NSS (Not So Solid) colorways. There are a few wonky spots where I picked up stitches, but that is because alot of it was done in the car or on the plane. Owell--I'm sure the person that is getting these will like them just the same.

Project specs:
Pattern: Hedera from
Yarn: Sunshine Yarns in the Cornflower NSS colorway
Measurements: Made to fit a women's US9
Started: October 5, 2006
Finished: October 23, 2006
Other Details: Knit these on a 2.5mm using the magic loop method. I really enjoyed this lace pattern and found it alot less boring than similar patterns. I will definitely be making another pair of these for myself in the future.

Great pictures and great socks! Knitty's got so many sock patterns right now, I really need to try some of them. (And I really, really need to buy some of your sock yarn, I am so embarrased that I still haven't!)
