[knitting] Rockies Socks

For the Canadian Rockies trip, I brought enough yarn to knit three pairs of socks. In my head, I'm a much faster knitter than I actually am. I ended up knitting one pair of socks:

Pattern: Retro Rib Socks from Favorite Socks

Yarn: Araucania Itata Multi

Needles: US 2

Notes: This is a rather busy colored yarn and I was a little worried that the pattern would be lost- but I think it worked out.

I definitely felt a little Second Sock Syndrome when I finished closing the toe of the first and thought, "Oh man, now I have to make another one?" I started a new pair and I'm doing them in tandem on two sets of US 2 needles- so I'll finish the pair at the same time.
