While I was on my trip with the kids to Seattle I wanted to take a knitting projects that would be easy and very portable. SOCKS are perfect for that. So I took some bamboo sock yarn that I got last month from my Secret Knitting Pal . I was able to knit one whole sock while on the bus on the first day of the trip. I worked on the second sock while we toured the city and also at any time I had to wait for something or someone. I didn't quite get the second sock done before I got home but there wasn't much left to do. I used size 2 needles and they were great to work on. One thing however, the socks are a bit to big for me so I have given them to my daughter who went on the trip too.
