WIP: Sock - Athena
Happy New Year Everybody!
I love knitting '2-at-a-time-Socks' and I always have an on-going project because I don't want to forget how to do it. This yarn has been ripped out from a previous sock project (2 years in progress). I had ripped out other areas many times over until I got to the sole portion then I realized the leg portion was too tight. So I started a new pattern this time with the same yarn. A while back I posted a "How-to" question regarding this pattern and thanks for all your help, I understand it better and on my way of knitting it.
I'm packing to go on a trip starting tomorrow. I'm taking this project and two other projects (a cowl and a shawl) with me so I will have something to do during sea days on a cruise ship.
I really appreciate this forum and all the expert help I get whenever I needed.

They are great looking. We just came back from a cruise last week in September and I took a whole bag of knitting. It is a great place to sit and knit and so many lovely places to sit too! Can't wait to see the finished product!

Oh great to hear someone else does it too. I thought I was the only nut that takes knitting on a cruise.
This afternoon we came back from a New Year Day bicycle ride. It felt good to be outside after all that snow we had since day after Christmas. With the trail cleared out (by hubby) we were able to ride without any incident.

The fun is over
Hi Everyone,
I finished the socks for a couple weeks now. I had to wait to model it because my legs are peeling from sun tanned. In the picture I'm wearing two layers of hose to keep from showing in the picture.
I really had fun knitting these socks and I think they look pretty good. The yarn aren't anything special. Bernat Sox: 60% Acrylic & 40% Nylon so they'll be machine washable and dryable. Easy to take care.
Now I have to decide on another pair to start.
