Carpool Knitting Season

I've started knitting on my ride home from work again. I kind of let it slide during the winter months. Mainly because it was dark going to and coming from work each day at that time of year. Now it is at least light during the trip home.

I think I need to find something else for this season though. I like the socks and they fit the bill for easy knitting when I confine myself to self striping yarn and a simple ribbed pattern. But they certainly aren't very interesting.

I like using the sock yarn because each skein gets me one square closer to having enough to put together my blanket. So I'll have to search for some simple projects that still use sock yarn. I'll have to come up with something soon though - I need a new car project.

Project Info

Pattern: 4x2 rib
Yarn: Regia desing LIne by Kaffe Fassett
75% wool, 25% polyamid
color - 4253; 2 skeins (50 grams/210 meters)
Needles: addi TURBO US# 1
Notes: Knit toe-up using a provisional cast on, short row heels, and a short row toes. Yarn is super wash.

I never really liked that KF stuff in the ball--but I love that stuff knitted up!

Pretty socks. But that is the best sock yarn square to date!

I like that colorway both in the sock and the square!

I'm knitting up mittens, gloves, and mitts this month and I find they are just as easy to tote around as socks, just another idea for portable projects :)

I LOVE the way that knit up but dang, that blanket square is the coolest!
