Socks galore

Lately, I’ve been doing a fair amount of travel, including trips to Frankfurt and Seoul, with plane trips in the 11 – 13 hour range depending on where I’m going.  I’ve been knitting socks on the plane 🙂

Hedera Socks

One of my favorite patterns was the Hedrea socks by Cookie A.  I love it so much I’m making a second pair after switching the chart around to be toe up!

Transoceanic Socks

On my first trip of the year, I had the unfortunate luck to forget my socks on the plane … and after calling lost and found for 4 days, they never found my socks.  And it was my handspun too!

Honey Badger Socks

I ended up knitting another pair of the Transoceanic Socks, as well as the Honey Badger, and finished off another pair of crochet socks made out of leftover sock yarn!

I think I’m well on my way to having enough hand made socks that I can use just hand made socks!  I do need some more cotton anklets for working out, and I think I can get 2 for each 100g ball of sock yarn, so it shouldn’t be too bad .. just to get the yarn!

Oh! and I’m doing some spinning between all the knitting and crochet too!

  1. I don’t think anyone has ever got back something left on a plane… So sorry about your hard work being left behind! I just love your sock projects 🙂
