Thanksgiving Knitting

Socks given to Marilyn for her hospitality
knit on size 2 needles with 2 skeins of
RH Heart and Sole (Watercolor Stripe)
I celebrated Thanksgiving in Denver with my sister and her family.

Before the trip, I had one sock knit just past the gusset, and fortunately I had some quality knitting time on the way to Denver because I caught a ride with my nephew and his family. On Wednesday's drive, I was able to knit until the sun slipped behind the Rockies. I also knit on Thanksgiving Day and Friday evening and grafted the toes before midnight on Friday. I slipped the socks on Marilyn's feet while she tacked the binding on one of her most recent quilts and snapped a photo with her iPad.

Marilyn, thank you for the invitation to celebrate the holiday with your family. I had a great time.
