Needles to say- we are very relaxed now.
Pattern: Vanilla Bean Striped Socks by Emily O'Grady
Yarn: Knit Picks Felici in "Jelly Bean" (huh- KP doesn't currently have any Felici on their site!)
Needles: US 1
Notes: This is such a great pattern for self striping yarn. Just enough to keep it interesting but still delightfully simple. I feel like Felici was made for this pattern! As usual- I cut the yarn in order to allow for a perfect striping sequence, and while it's extra ends to weave in, I NEVER regret the choice.
Like all good vacations, I do set out to have some projects to work on. And as always, I always plan for more than I knit. Progress did occur... but it was slow to potentially non-exsistent. Meet "Maudie" and "Take Five"- you'll be seeing a lot more of them I'm sure.
