A Pair on the Road


Finished the Embossed Leaves while on the way to NY by car (1200 miles)....a dear friend lost the fight with cancer and we needed to be there for the farewell. The socks now reside with my sister which is fitting because the socks remind me of the granite boulders of the Adirondacks so they have been named the Granite Socks! Reducing the stitches to 64 stitches on 2.75 needles with Sockatta yarn and they fit fine. Nice lessons learned along the way........

That's a baeutiful pair of socks - great pattern & great color - I think I am one of the last sock knitters who have not yet knit this pattern.

They're gorgeous! That yarn is beautiful--it certainly does look like granite in NYS--I've seen it on many a car trip from NYC to relatives Upstate. I hope your socks helped you in some way to get through your farewells...

I'm probably the OTHER sock knitter who hasn't done these yet--which might get remedied soon ;-)

Love the color! I enjoy knitting in the car also. We have a 15 hour car trip to visit our nearest relatives so I get lots of knitting done. :)

There is probably a whole army of us who haven't done this sock yet - I'm another one!
