Honeymoon Socks :)

Phew! It's been a few weeks since I last participated in a yarn along--I haven't had the time to blog or knit. Not that I'm complaining. :) Keith and I spent last week on the shores of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. It was pretty rainy half the time, but that's okay. It was still a beautiful honeymoon.

I brought along some yarn for a pair of socks, only to decide that the pattern didn't suit the variegated colorway I'd chosen. So of course I had to buy some new yarn at a store in Halifax. I cast on the same socks in the new yarn while waiting in the airport for the flight back to Pittsburgh.


And yesterday I finally checked out the sequel to the Mazerunner from the library. It's taking me a bit to remember who the characters were and what they did in the last book, which I read back in December/January, but I'm getting there.

Lots to do--I'm hoping to get the kitchen completely unpacked today, and Keith has requested iced tea (his first such husbandly request!), and I have ... um ... a lot of writing to do. Gulp. Please pray for me, if you are so inclined.

  2. Lovely wool - I can't wait to see the finished product. It's making me wish I had some fingering weight yarn around here to cast on another pair of socks - I'm completely hooked!

  4. My husband and I have not yet been on a honeymoon (we went to a local Bed and Breakfast in PA before moving to Maryland), but when we do go somewhere, he's planning on taking me to Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia. I LOVE the socks, and the photograph of you two dancing is beautiful. Congrats!!
