I never missed an opportunity to knit in Minnesota. For the purposes of “travel knitting” (ie, any activity except sitting on the porch or riding in the car) I had 2 main projects: the sleeves for Jeff’s sweater, and a simple spiraling rib sock out of ONLine sock yarn.
I knitted anywhere and everywhere, but I think a summary from these past few weeks’ posts is worthwhile:
I knitted at a Caribou Coffee in the Mall of America (beginning o’ the sock!):
I knitted as I laughed at Jeff “swimming” in Lake Superior:
I knitted before lunch at Betty’s Pies:
I knitted at many different spots at Gooseberry Falls:
I knitted on the beach below Split Rock Lighthouse (would’ve been cool to get a photo with the lighthouse in the background. Alas…):
And I knitted outside Caribou Coffee in Duluth:
And many, many more places that I neglected to photograph. Yes, this is one well-traveled sock! Now it’s just going backandforthandbackandforthandbackandforth to and from Downtown St. Louis on the train with me every day. Decidedly less exciting.
I did finish the toe of that first sock on the train this morning, though, as an inquisitive 8-year-old girl watched over my shoulder and asked what I was doing with all those “pins”. As I finished the last couple kitchener stitches and held up the newly-completed socks, she said “wow…..like magic!”
Indeed, like magic 🙂
