Maryland Socks

I can't believe I only packed one knitting project for my trip to Maryland.  I have a bad habit of packing twice as many projects as days that I'll be away.  Okay, so I did pack extra needles just in case I picked up some yarn and had the uncontrollable urge to start knitting immediately.  I was good this time around.

I cast on the stitches for a sock while I was waiting to board the plane in Calgary at the start of the trip and knit through the day on the plane, and between flights in Chicago.

I knit a little in Maryland, but the trip was busy and time was short.  However, I did finish the sock on the flight home - except for doing the Kitchener stitch to close the toe.  I didn't bring a large-eye needle with me on the plane.

The color is a little weird as it's not always easy to get decent lighting on a plane.  I've only just started the second sock.  Other projects at home, like the sock yarn blanket, are tempting me away.  BUT, I will not give in to Second Sock Syndrome.  These socks will be finished soon.

Next up, back to the concert - Santana!
