We’re baaaack! Our whirlwind weekend trip to Las Vegas is over, but it was a lot of fun and I’ve got a smattering of appropriately touristy pictures to prove it. Without further ado, my mini album:
Thanks for inviting us, Michelle, and Happy Happy Birthday! (PS: Kissy kissy!)
PS: Of course there was knitting, people! Las Vegas and back is a long way to fly, and what better way to pass the time than to work on the new sock design. Here’s the before picture (AKA the ‘still on the tarmac at JFK’ picture):
That’s a nice ribbed cuff and one pattern repeat of the leg. (Note the Dunkin Donuts coffee cup within reach. Must. be. prepared.)
After several smooth hours in the air, we landed at Las Vegas and this was my work-in-progress shot:
Not bad, right? Especially for someone who knits English and is using dpn’s. That’s several inches of leg finished.
As you can imagine, the knitting time in Las Vegas was scarce, but the return flight definitely yielded more progress:
The heel is done and the foot is underway!
Once I’ve gotten this first sock finished and the pattern written up enough for other knitters to try, I’ll be getting it out to some test knitters in a variety of sizes while I finish the second sock – how’s that for efficiency? I’m definitely seeing this as a unisex design, depending on the color used. The knitting mojo is in high gear 🙂

WOW…what a FAB hotel…!!!…a visit to Venice without leaving the good old U. S. of A.!!! I am glad that you had a great time and traveled safely! I love, love, LURVE the sock pattern…the texture is impressive…it reminds me of the “popcorn” socks of my youth…you know…back when Planet Earth was “cooling”…great job!!!
Oh my! That was some weekend trip you had, and the photos are very impressive. I’m surprised all of those lights and beautiful sights did not blind you. 🙂
The sock is coming along really good. Looks fantastic too! 🙂
