Well, at least the second one. Last week I was traveling for work and decided it would be the perfect opportunity to make my first pair of socks (I know, I know... it's about time). I wanted to do the socks at the same time on circular needles, but it turned out that I did not have the adequate needles.
With a skein of Colinette Jitterbug and 4 double pointed needles in hand, it was safe to head to the airport.
The socks started for myself. I began at the toe, and when I tried them on, they were a bit loose. I'm not a fan of loosy-goosy socks, so they quickly turned into a gift for Joe. Even though I was in meetings all week, and had very limited time, I managed to finish the first sock the evening I arrived at home.
This week I have a little more free time, and guess what I can't seem to finish? If only I could have done both socks at the same time. I'm sure I would have paid top dollar for size 1 circular needles the night before I left for my trip...
Moral of the story? All airports should have yarn shops!
