The Travel Dilemma

Today we are going up to Philly to see a hockey game! DH and I are trying to see a hockey game together at every NHL arena and Philly hasn’t been marked off the list yet.

This brings up the “what project should I take for the drive?” dilemma. I know I should take my Friday Harbor sock to finish since once I finish it, I have a finished pair! But I am so tempted by my Cabin Cove yarn and my All Things Heather yarn and my Yarn Pirate yarn.

Today I am daydreaming about Pomatomi in the gorgeous purple Cabin Cove yarn that Betty (Knitting Betty), my KSKS pal, sent me.

This week, I finished my pattern edits and both socks from the pattern. Tomorrow my mother has agreed to be my foot model, so I should have some good shots to turn in with the pattern next week. I am very happy with the socks. I don’t think the pattern is difficult, but it sure is long! Here’s a teaser shot of the socks blocking:

And for Deb (Chappysmom) who celebrates her birthday Monday (drop by and wish her a great one!), here is an awful, dark shots of November on my office calendar obviously taken with my poor cameraphone.

Now, back to my dilemma…

    For sure, take the Friday Harbor sock and get that done. That’ ll make it easier to make other things without the guilt of unfinished projects. Of course, this is one man’s opinions, your may vary. lol

    Oh my gosh! Getting to see an NHL game in every arena, this sounds like heaven to me! Can I come over and join you? ;) I hope you had an amazing time at the Flyers game – but I’m sure you did!
    Awww, what a teaser, these socks look absolutely stunning from what I can see at the pic – can’t wait to see them modelled in all their glory!

    No fair teasing! What I can see of the socks looks phenomenal–and the color is fantabulous.

    Definately go with the Pomatomi in your Cabin Cove yarn — the yarn is beautiful and is perfect for the socks. Hope you had fun at the hockey game.
