A Journey in Socks

Let me start by saying that I knit on more than just this sock over the course of last week while I was visiting my awesome friend, Brenna, in Salt Lake City, Utah. I was inspired by several posts I’ve seen lately where people post their sock progress on a plane or other trip. So here we go!


I started my journey in Salt Lake’s airport.


An hour later, I landed in Las Vegas for a 2 hour layover. I didn’t have the pattern with me and was “winging” it. I didn’t like the way the garter stitch sections were turning out so I ripped back to the ribbing before the next flight.


I took this last photo about 20 minutes before we landed in St. Louis. I knew I wouldn’t be patient or aware enough to take one when we touched down.

I bought this yarn on my first day in Salt Lake at a cute little shop called Kamille’s in Gardner Village. I wish I had a taken a picture of the quaint cabin that housed some beautiful yarns, but if you click the name it will take you to their website.

I’m using some Mountain Colors Crazyfoot in the Springtime colorway on US 1s (2.25mm) and it’s the Bootstrap Sock pattern by Lara Neel from Sock Architecture! My project page.

Even though I have enough knitting to keep my busy for months, I just had to have some small amount brainless knitting 🙂 Who can resist socks in this super springy base??


v’s & bumps,

  1. I need to finish my first pair of socks. I’m at the point of turning the heel. I’m not afraid of doing that but all the other projects are just keeping me permanently sidetracked. LOLOL!

    Can’t wait to see yours done.

  2. I love seeing sock journey posts. I had one planned out in November for a trip but when I went to grab my sock in the first airport I realized that I had left it in the car. NOOOOO!! It was the worst flight ever, I have no idea how people who don’t knit go through life. Your sock looks lovely, I hope you had a wonderful trip.
