Magic Monkey Socks

I’m on a huge sock kick right now. Socks are the perfect knitting project for plane travel — they don’t take up too much room in my laptop bag and they’re small enough that I’m not elbow-checking my neighbor every three seconds. Here’s my most recent finished pair, which I got a ton of work done on courtesy of a five hour delay from DTW to PHL. Sheesh.

Yarn: Jawoll Magic

Did I mention I’m on a huge sock kick? Look what showed up at my front door this afternoon: enough sock yarn to keep me busy on my upcoming vacation. Just me, hubby, family, lots of knitting and absolutely NO tv or internet. Sounds like heaven!

I’m seriously addicted to Madeline Tosh’s Light Merino, which I used most recently in my Portland Socks. I loved it so much that I had to indulge in a few more colorways. It knits up beautifully and feels heavenly. A little pricey, but worth the splurge!
