It Was a Fine Idea at the Time

P1040143

Where has October gone? When I started these socks only a few weeks ago, I had big plans for Socktober. Knit this pair of socks from scratch, finish one or two pair that are already in progress, maybe throw in a Halloween craft project or two . . .

Let's just say that it didn't happen, and move on. The Poppy Socks are just past the heel turn, and I'm still enjoying the pattern. I'm not yet to the knit-foot-forever stage, but it will probably be here soon. I love, love, love the color of the yarn and the way that it's knitting up. I'm hoping that I can finish these before my upcoming mini-vacation--Mom and I are going to Kauai over Veteran's Day weekend. Any recommendations?

Very pretty yarn. I haven't been to Kauai (only Maui) - LUCKY YOU! I hear it's quite lovely there. Have a blast!

Yes, I have suggestions for LIH! Let me send you my spreadsheet of things we did there when I get back to the office (I know, I know...a spreadsheet, how very unlike me...). :)

Have a great time in Kauai! The socks are looking great.
