when we left on vacation, i packed two projects; one crochet and one knit. i still had to try knitting with four needles in the passenger seat, but if that wasn't possible there always were my hexagons, that can be crocheted anywhere!
i made quite some progress on my hexagon blanket! i already started crocheting them together and i love how it looks. i'm really loving the color combination, this blanket (when finished) will look so good in our living room!! it is looking more like a table runner than like a blanket at the moment, but it will grow and grow... and look gorgeous in the end. :)
unfortunately, the pair of socks i took with me don't show a lot of progress. before we left, i tried the almost-finished sock on (which i didn't before, because i was confident it would fit, as i'm knitting the same number of stitches that i usually knit for socks)... and it turned out too small. so, i decided to rip the whole thing out and start over. since i didn't love the result of the broken rib stitch with the yarn i was using (although it was growing on me), i decided to yet again go for my fool-proof basic sock recipe... a week later i am left with what i started; half a finished sock. but one that fits and that i like way better!
