Do you ever pause, just before dashing out of the house in the morning, saying to yourself,
“I can’t face that train journey without some knitting”?
Apart from being valuable knitting time, knitting helps me ignore the the “less pleasant and irritating” aspects of some of the other commuters. Anyone who has ever taken a rushhour train in London won’t need that elaborated on!
I had about 4 minutes to spare before I had to leave so this was a quick decision – Socks!
Grab the nearest sock yarn from my stash and the faithful, boring Regia free pattern I always seem to knit. Stuff in my knit pouch and run for the train.
For a project started with so little thought – I’m rather pleased! 😀
The yarn is Garnstudio DROPS Fabel – some I bought with my friend Judie a couple of years ago at a knit show (Ally Pally I think). The nice lady on the stand said 3 balls would make 2 pairs of socks so Judie and I bought 3 balls each of two different colours and swapped what we didn’t use. Judie finished both her pairs ages ago!
It’s not a thrilling commuting project but ideal for the train and those funky colours wake me up in the morning too!!
