#4

... that would be orphan #4 in my 'summer of socks' series. i will say, it is time to start knitting the mates.

yeah! another orphan!!!

i finished this socken a couple of days ago, and i am happy to report that i am about 1/2 way through the socken-mate.

i even cast on the mate for my knee hi wool socken, but had to rip because i had goofed up beyond trying to drop down and fix mis-cabled-misscrossings.

hmmm ... so, 4 orphans, 2 mates in the making, 1 retry, and 1 need-to-cast-on. not too bad (for me).

i am flying away this sunday for a week long trip. i will be taking knitting. i am not worried about getting to the airport, security, clothing, etc ... but i am concerned about which knitting projects i will take along to entertain me, because my knitting attention span is wee at best. hmmm .....

Your single-socken-madness is contagious.. I've started doing the same thing. It _is_ more interesting for those of us with short attention spans though. lol.

I love the color of that yarn! You totally inspired me to wind up some of my yellow yarn and start my 4th pair of Jaywalkers! ha!

Gorgeous orphans! The yellow is so pretty, and I think your blue stocking is even more lovely than the last pair!

Have a wonderful trip!

love the single orphans! that yellow is great - the jaywalker is a nice match for it!

hope you get the second in that pair knitted up quickly. it'd be a shame. it's such a lovely yellow to be all by its lonesome and unworn.

you can bring a selection of 4 mates to work on and switch back & forth... would that keep you stimulated??

love the yellow jaywalker.
