This is how long it takes to get to Sioux Falls and back.


Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug (100% merino, fingering weight), color 184 Scented Paprika, about 3/4 of a skein/300 yds.
Needle: Signature circ US#4.
Pattern: Sockhead Hat.

We went to visit Elder Son last weekend — many hours in the car. I had cast on this hat the day before and knit a few rounds; it was my car knitting for the trip. Finished it on I-90 even before we turned north on I-35, so I was able to get a good start on another pair of double-thick socks.

I made myself a hat about a month ago, but it turned out to be droopy rather than slouchy, so it is in time out until I get the courage — or energy — to frog the last part and make it shorter. This one, however, is a winner! In my stash I have some handspun in a similar colorway that will become a coordinating scarf.

    Now you just need a good long road trip to knit the scarf!

    So nice to have a project . . . instead of a clock . . . to mark the time!

    Ooh, I have many yarns that would work with this. Good, and just in time – I’m almost done with the current pair of socks, and I need more mindless knitting.
    How is Elder Son? Did you teach the two girls to knit?
