Boy, this has been an exciting two weeks. We left Baltimore on the 8th, and drove to Asheville, where I cast on these socks on the 10th leaving Lake Norman. They had their first adventure at Biltmore, with the blacksmith!
We went to Hill Country Weavers in Austin. It rocked! HCW could easily be a favourite on my country-wide yarn crawl. I loved HCW. Their selection was ginormous: room after room of a delicious selection of yarn. They were super friendly, clearly busy due to happy customers, and really lovely. We were quite pleased. ^_^
(also I got yarn there for gloves for the Playwright and another pair of socks that I cast on today)
The sock was finished on the evening of July 20th, in Fredericksburg, Texas, and the pair was complete!
I love them. They’re very comfy. One of the heel flaps is (significantly) shorter than the other, but the fit is barely noticeable, and I refused to rip back.
Such an adventure.
