When I packed at home I had:
- Socks 1: The Corn Yarn socks. I was at the toe of Sock 1 and it has been sadly waiting for me to finish it and more on to sock 1.2 (These are one size 1 needles)
- Socks 2: The New Green socks. I was through the heel but hadn't gotten down the foot of sock 2.1 (These are on size 0 needles)
- Socks 3: This was a ball of Sanguine Gryphon Bugga that I threw in my bag because I knew I'd hit the toes of socks and need something else.
It's been very amusing. A lot of people stop me to proclaim that they can't walk and knit at the same time. I have not regaled anyone yet of the long tradition of women carrying their knitting with them to ensure they were not wasting time. I've had conversations about the difference between picking and throwing stitches, knitting baby sweaters, and so on and so forth. It gives people something to exclaim about and I'm happy to provide that.
So, present status for the conference:
Sock 1.1 -- DONE (except to weave in the ends)
Sock 1.2 -- Ready to turn the heel
Sock 2.1 -- Working on the toe
Sock 2.2 -- Not yet begun
Sock 3.1 -- Working on the toe
Sock 3.2 -- 3/4" into the cuff
Now onto Day 3 and the going home portion of the week.
