My knitting love weekend continued with a Cookie A class, Traveling Stitches. Hmm Yarn Voyage and Traveling Stitches, I think my knitting may have a theme.
Cookie started off explaining that traveling stitches are stitches that move across your knitting, side to side, rather than stacked vertical knitting. To highlight what she was describing she passed around her socks. She started off with my first love German Stocking. I was a bad student because I interrupted class to ask for a picture.
Hey I could not resist a picture of my favorite sock with its designer. I wanted to cast on for these when I found out she was coming, what can I say I am a suck up. However my lack of appropriate yarn held me back. I buy yarn for color and a multicolored yarn would not be good for these socks. I am thinking of making them in a plain undyed yarn. Now I just need to buy more yarn. You see my hold up right? Maybe I need to knit down the stash first.

Anyone else have the urge to cast on some socks now? Happy Knitting
