Traveling Socks

Nancy Bush certainly captured a good name for a sock pattern book. These socks have been all over the map. Wish I'd been knitting faster, but happily they are done!

Pattern: Conwy
Yarn: Lang Wool's Jawoll Color Superwash
Needle size: 2

Off they go to Montreal, these quirky fraternal socks. The marl ply was definitely more mixed in true first part of that first skein.

Knitting is still fascinating, as slow as it goes from time to time on the journey.

Suddenly Last Summer

That's far too dramatic a film, Mr. Williams, but the phrase is appealing.

I finished the knitting of this scarf (shawl?) at camp this summer of 2015. Blocked it on Sunday and left it two days to dry.

It has been toooooo long a knit. I am very happy to be done. Traveling Vines is the pattern. Yarn is from Schoolhouse Yarns in NYC, a hand dyed blend of silk, cashmere, a little nylon, and probably something else listed in Ravelry.
