The journey , part one

This sock has been everywhere with me as I've tried to focus on getting it off the needles. Piano lessons, orthodontist appointments, play practice...you name it. Today, I finally set it free!

This is my first time knitting with Trekking yarn (color #109), and I love it. It's nicely fuzzy, easy on the hands, and I love the way the colors just meld into one another. There's a heathery look about it that just pleases me. I'm ready to cast on the second one now, so I can wear this pair soon. Oh, and did I mention there's another ball of Trekking waiting in the wings?

Pretty!

Man, everyone is knitting socks now. I'm gonna have to give sock knitting another go.

Very nice. I think on my next socks, I'll carry the ribbing down the top of the foot, too. Do you find that it makes a smoother fit?

Ooooh I love the way the colors melt together in that skein. I still haven't tried Trekking; I've got to get some!

How funny! I purchased the EXACT same two colorways of Trekking this month at the LYS! Your blue sock is beautiful!
