It is about time I posted some knitting pictures!
Anita sent me this gorgeous Mountain Colors yarn. I first cast on for the Whitby Socks from Knitting on the Road. After a couple of inches however, it was clear that the pattern and the yarn were not the best match. It was suggested I try the Retro Rib pattern from Interweave’s Winter 2004 issue.
I think it could be love.
The Boar and I went into the city on Sunday for Fleet Week. We waited online for two hours – two hours! – to see the aircraft carrier The JFK. I got a lot of knitting done – our fellow line standers thought I might be able to finish a sweater while we waited. You realize that I could care less about touring aircraft carriers. The Boar however was thrilled. I look on it as a deposit into the good-marital-karma account. Here are some pics
Good karma and good knitting time…the perfect match.
Hey that’s my airplane over there!
I don’t see what could make for a better day than knitting and airplanes. That’s how I like to spend my free time!
You are a super wife! We have to do those things, don’t we. Nice to be appreciated, though. :)
The sock is gorgeous – I love that pattern!
It’s a great pattern, isn’t it? I’m stalled on the second one, though, but mostly I think because I haven’t had a lot of knitting time lately. The yarn looks great!
Hey! I toured the JFK about 9 years ago when it visited Dublin Bay. How cool—it’s massive!
I’m all about marital karma these days – you done good. Those socks look great.
I used up all my marital karma a looooong time ago. ;-)
Those are lovely socks. I really love the color.
The sock looks great. What a great idea for that yarn…I wonder what amazing person thought to use that!
Awesome socks! I’m so pleased that you like the yarn and that that socks are coming out so well!
