I am finally taking a vacation with my family and I am so excited. First I want to thank my mom and dad for house/dog sitting so we could make this trip.
Yes, while on this trip I plan to hit some yarn shops and have a little bit of knitting fun. I am going to start a pair of Traveling Socks so check back often on my progress (or perhaps knit a pair with me), which shops I hit and what fun things I find. I’m really excited… off we go!
If you would like to join me in a Traveling Socks knit-along (KAL), I have set up a forum on Ravelry, just go to the Rainy Day Yarns group. I am starting out on day one with knitting the toe of my sock in a yarn from my shop. I will continue swapping colors as I hit different shops in (hopefully) every state, and stripping them or creating some fun pattern. If you decide to join in I will have some fun prizes to giveaway when I get back. You must join our Ravelry page and post pictures of your progress or simply note information on your socks. In order to win a prize, I will need to see photos of your socks either on Ravelry, Facebook or email. You can use whatever yarn you want, simply note what yarns and what shops they are from. Be creative, there may be a prize for that too!
This KAL will run from July 10th-August 1st. You don’t need to complete a pair of socks to win a prize, you just need to be started on your own project. This KAL is open to anyone in the US.
