There are so many things I love in our international knitting community on Ravelry, and one event which is always fun is travelling socks. Each participant starts a pair of socks, which is then send to a knitting friend, who adds a bit, then sends it on to the next knitting friend... and so on you get the picture.
My socks are currently in the USA, but this week I received two pairs to knit on.
The pair above is for my dear friend Laurel and since it fit her colour scheme so good, I even used one of my precious new sock yarns from Hedgehog Fibres, the variegated one above the orange. I LOVE how it looks and I was tempted to cast on a pair of socks right away. But, sigh, still some samples which have top priority...
The pair below also is for a knitting friend from the USA, Stacy. I am really smitten with her colour scheme, colours from the ocean. So far these look like socks I'd love to have for myself... not only because of the colours, but because I like the fit of socks knit entirely in ribbing. But just as Laurel's pair, Stacy's pair is now on its way to the next knitter.
It'll be exciting to see how these turn out eventually and of course, I am just as curious to see how my socks will look like. Yay! For knitting friends! :)
