Adam decided that I couldn't possibly take a plain picture of my sockapalooza sock for the blog, it would be too boring, it needed some human interest.
On our 7 1/2 hour (one way) trip to South Dakota this weekend I got a lot of knitting done. Unfortunately there were a few tense moments as I realized that both the sock and the shawl I was working on needed to be ripped back. Apparently reading a map while knitting isn't the best idea in the world. This was all right around the time where we took County Rd 12 instead of HWY 12. I guess I didn't excel at either activity! Thanks to hours of uninterupted (except for passing snacks and juice boxes into the back seat) knitting time, I am up to the gusset on my sockapalooza sock. It's looking fabby! The pattern called for an eye of partridge heel (pretty appropriate since I knit this in South Dakota!) which I adore. I love knitting that heel, I love admiring it while I knit it, it just looks so pretty. Plus it is extremely durable.
