They (or at least, I, and Yarn Harlot, and others I’m sure) cast on socks. Preferably socks that don’t need a lot of thinking, so they can be knit on airplanes and airports and everywhere in between. So for my three weeks away, I cast on and knit socks. I finished these the day I got back home.
Rarely do I want to wear knit socks in the middle of July do I want to wear knit socks. But a few times while I was knitting these I was hoping they’d be finished soon. But summer seems to have been poor on both sides of the North Atlantic this year. I got a few warm days in Ottawa, but not much else.
